    For targeted twitter marketing, is there a way to search for and only target tweets that don't have any URL's in them? What would be the search operator for that? I ask because although Tweet Dominator accepts a list of keywords for the Wait and Reply Module, it doesn't have a feature that allows it to exclude replying to tweets that have a link in them like Tweet Attacks did. So, is there a specific search operator I need to use in Twitter?

    Just add -http

    For example:

    iphone -http -rt

    *-rt if you wish to disregard retweets*

    Thanks for the help guys ... what if I want to disregard -http as well as some words? Can I have like "keyword? -http -rt -sell -selling"? Apparently I just tried it and it doesn't work -- is it possible to do something like this?

    don't add quotation marks. Write it like this:

    keyword -http -rt -sell -selling

    The quotations were just for the forum... I did write it like that but when I add multiple - commands, it starts showing links again?
