Twitter Improves Search Adds Some Powerful Features

Friday Twitter added some powerful search options to their social media site. Introducing Search Autocomplete and “People You Follow” search results making it even easier to find out what’s going on in your online realm.

Search Autocomplete shows the most likely phrases for your search phrase as you type. This makes finding existing hashtag topics or events a breeze. Just start typing and choose your result from a possible list of choices.

After you get your results there are also a bunch of other improvements.

Spelling corrections: If you misspell a word or phrase the results will be shown for the suggested/corrected term.

Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, we will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.

Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like ‘Alec Baldwin,’ you’ll see results mentioning that person’s real name and their Twitter account username.

Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing ‘All’ or ‘Top’ Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the ‘People you follow’ view. Viewing Tweets about a topic from just the people you follow is a great way to find useful information and join the conversation.
