Twitter's new search experience, which we first told you it was testing in April, is now rolling out to all users on the web.

The new search not only looks different (with that big bold bar at the top of results), but it also provides a few new filtering options.

What used to be called "ALL" tweets is now called "LIVE", and clicking on it will feed a live stream of all tweets rolling in regarding said search term. The options to filter by "accounts" (used to be "people"), photos, and videos is now up top, instead of on the left side. It's a much more prominent placement for filtering options.

The "more options" tab easily lets you save a search, embed a search, filter for more specific needs, or go to advanced search.

Just for reference, here's what the old search results looked like:

“We’re rolling out a new search experience to users on web. Like other features, we will continue to iterate and improve on this, to make it even easier for users to find what they are looking for when they search on Twitter," said a Twitter spokesperson.
