Yesterday Twitter teased us about how its search and discovery were set to change forever – which we weren’t sure what they were talking about. Today, the answer has finally been revealed. According to a blog post on the official Twitter blog, they’ve made significant changes to the way Twitter.com works when it comes to search and discovery. The main improvement over the previous search is the introduction of search autocomplete. Instead of having to type complete words or sentences in the search field, the new autocomplete feature will help you with that once you enter the first few letters of your search term.
Other improvements include “people you follow” search results, related query suggestions, spelling corrections and more relevant search results. I haven’t seen the new features yet on the Twitter.com website yet so I’m assuming it’s going to be a staged rollout as usual. For those of you who already have the new features, do let us know if they work well. Related search suggestions, search autocomplete and spelling corrections will also make their way to the Android and iOS Twitter app.
