Twitter seems to be much more interested in giving its users a better search experience these days. It recently launched a revamped search experience for Twitter.com.

Now its Vine mobile apps are getting a search upgrade. The company announced today that you'll now be able to go to the explore tab, enter a word, phrase, or account, and get actual vines, as opposed to just hashtags and people results.

"Head over to the Explore tab and enter a word, phrase or account – like #6secondcover, pugs or lele pons. In addition to searching people and tags, you can also choose to watch either top or recent posts as you scroll through a feed of Vines," says software engineer Sergey Grankin on the Vine blog.

The new search will only be available on iOS at first. It will be rolling out over the course of the coming weeks. It will also be available on Android soon, according to Grankin.

Improved Vine search means it will be easier for people to find interesting content on the service, and that's good for content creators. Anything that makes its services more appealing to users and content creators has to be good for Twitter, which continues to struggle with user growth and pleasing shareholders.
