The popular microblogging platform, Twitter has launched a new search button on profile pages that makes it easier to search a user’s tweets. Moreover, social media consultant, Matt Navarra informed that the button had started appearing for a small number of users last month, but now XDA Developers state that the feature has launched widely in the service’s iOS app.
The New Feature Helps to Easily Search a User’s Tweets
Being able to narrow a search to a single user’s tweets is not a new Twitter feature. Users can obtain the same result by utilizing the format “from: [Twitter handle] [search term]” in the usual Twitter search box. So, for example, if you wanted to search my (bad) tweets for every time I entered the word “keyboard,” you could tap the search icon in the app and enter: from: jonporty keyboard.
The new button to search a user’s tweets makes life just a bit easier. It could be helpful if, for instance, you want to find an article you vaguely remember someone tweeting about months ago but can’t retain the specifics of. The new search button to search a user’s tweets is a small example of the flurry of new features Twitter has been adding to its service in recent months.
Twitter Has Been on a Roll with New Updates and Features
In addition to this, just last week the platform launched the ability for iOS users worldwide to Super Follow Twitter accounts, suggesting that they’re now able to pay for access to bonus content from content creators on the platform. That same month, Twitter also began allowing anyone to host one of its audio-only Space chatrooms. Other new features comprise its Twitter Blue subscription service, and Communities.
