Interesting changes are headed for twitter search in the coming days. Santosh Jayaram, the Twitter’s new VP of Operations, said, “Twitter Search will begin to start crawling the links which are posted in tweets and index the content of those pages. Instead of simply indexing the tweets of its users, Twitter Search will now offer search technology which will transform it into more of an open window of the live conversations and real time indexing which is happening within the Twitter community.”

Here's a screen preview of Twitter Search:

According to Needleman reports, Twitter Search, which currently only searches for Twitter posts will now add a new reputation ranking system. It will take into account user's reputation who wrote the tweet, and ranked its results based on the reputation. Although, no exact information have been provided about the reputation calculation. It is believed that it will be built upon trust factors and influence.

In simple words, Twitter improves its search capabilities by indexing its web pages and reputation ranking. These improvements will surely enhance the company's outstanding leverage in the future.
