Yesterday, Twitter announced updates to its search on the Twitter mobile app. The upgrade comprises of an improved relevancy engine for the top tweets by Twitter users. It also includes an improved search auto-completion as well as a simpler web browser for the search results.
On their blog twitter informed, “Now when you search for important Twitter moments, you may see a Top Tweet separate from the rest of the results. This Tweet is the best match for your query based on relevance and engagement. To see additional Tweets from this time period, tap on “View more from this time.” Try searching for “four more years” or “deep challenge” on your phone to see an example."
Top Tweets In Search Results
Along with an improved search Twitter has also introduced two features relevant for Twitter users on Iphone and Ipad.
- Tweets, links and Web Browsing:
Whenever a user clicks on a link available in a Tweet in the timeline, one will see the tweet displayed in the bottom corner of the built-in-browser of the Twitter app. This provides the user with an enhanced Twitter experience while one is reading the content on the link. Find the link interesting and dont want to see the tweet at the bottom of the app? Simply tap on the page and the tweet will slide out of view. By dragging up or down the tray icon, the tweet will again be visible.
The autocomplete feature has also been improved. When a user is composing a tweet or searching on twitter he will get automatic hashtag, topic as well as username suggestions.
