Twitter Search gets smarter!
Twitter said on Friday that it was upgrading its search functions to include ‘autocomplete’ and spelling correction features.
The new Twitter search will also anticipate when users are looking for posts by people they follow, and offer related suggestions. The search will also see improvements when it comes to related terms, hashtags and accounts. “If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms,” says engineer Frost Li, “we will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.”
And finally, once your search is complete, you have a new option to narrow it down: click on tweets from people you follow. This will appear next to the regular search filter options, “top” and “all.” In other words, if you want to forget the rest of Twitter exists outside your circle of follows, the company just made it a lot easier.
