Twitter introduces Google-like instant Search
Anyone who uses Google search engine will know that instant search results and auto complete is something we have become accustomed to and sometimes I even use it without realising it’s there as it has now become a second nature.
Microblogging website, Twitter has now introduced the same feature, although you might not see it straight away, you can see below from Twitter’s blog. It is mainly an update aimed at web users and will be able to filter search results smarter and efficiently with auto correct and auto complete features.
Twitter says, After you enter your search, you’ll find the most relevant Tweets, articles, accounts, images and videos for your query.
“We’ve also made several other improvements to make your search experience better.
- Spelling corrections: If you misspell a term, we’ll automatically show results for your intended query.
- Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, we will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.
- Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like ‘Jeremy Lin,’ you’ll see results mentioning that person’s real name and their Twitter account username.
- Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing ‘All’ or ‘Top’ Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the ‘People you follow’ view. Viewing Tweets about a topic from just the people you follow is a great way to find useful information and join the conversation.
