New Twitter Search Improves on Finding Conversations

Aims to make search more relevant

Twitter has redone its search feature, and it’s much more enjoyable to use now, if you ask me. The design replicates that of the “new Twitter”. If you click on a tweet from the search results, another pane will open up with that tweet, and the conversation that surrounds it. That in itself makes this version of Twitter search much more user-friendly.

This will be especially helpful for reporters looking to Twitter for conversation relevant to a story, as we often do here at WebProNews. Now you can see the direct conversation in a nice little thread format.

New Twitter Search

Twitter says it includes more relevant search results, as well as photos and videos, which will also be tremendously helpful.

The search.twitter.com site is now twitter.com/search. Major improvements include more relevant search results and related photos & videos! 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Users can switch between Top, All, and “With Links” as search options. Top would be the supposedly relevant ones, All would be by time, and With Links would be…well, with links.

If you want to see all results instead of relevance-filtered results,
click “Top” above search results and select “All.” #protip 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

It’s worth noting that this update to Twitter search comes at a time when people are questioning the lack of a search feature on Twitter’s new major competitor, Google+. That lack is especially questionable, considering that the product comes from Google, the reigning king of search.

    If you ask me, the new twitter search is much worse than its original. If you wanna search all results, you have to select all every new search. And the main part: you can’t get over 1 page of search results. Big BOOOOOO to twitter.
