    Find the Twitter application, and tap on it once to open the application.
    The Twitter application has a blue background with a white bird on it, with the word "Twitter" underneath it. Your Twitter application may be in a different position in this folder, therefore you will need to find it.

    To search for individually specified results, tap on them one.

    We can also tap on "MORE OPTIONS" to bring up more options to search for, like "All people" which means everyone in the world who uses Twitter, or "People you follow" which is just people we follow.
    We can also choose "Everywhere" or "Near you" which is Tweets and posts near us. To change any of these options, we will just tap on them once. When we tap on them, it will highlight the title in bold black.

    When we're happy with the new options selected, we will tap on "APPLY" in blue located in the top-right corner of the screen.
    Now it's going to only search what we've searched for. In this example, it's just going to show photos with the cloud reference. We've refined our search into a much more specific search.
