Twitter has rolled out improved features which will make things easier for users. The company has introduced search autocomplete and "People you follow" features. The Search autocomplete is expected to show the most "likely terms" as the user enters the query. The company claims that it is more useful for users who follow the hashtag or even if he/she is checking out for a particular Twitter account. Possibly, a user can choose queries from the dropdown menu even before typing the query completely.
After the user enters the text into the search field, he/she will be able to view relevant Tweets, articles, accounts, videos and pictures. "These updates make search easier on twitter.com, and related search suggestions, search autocomplete and spelling corrections are also available on Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android," explains Twitter on its blog.
Twitter has added some improvements in order to make things easier.
There may be chances when a user may misspell a term. Thanks to Twitter's improvement, it will show results for the user's intended query.
When a user searches for a certain topic by using multiple terms, the improvement offers related suggestions for the terms depending on the conversation which is happening widely on Twitter.
Results with real names and usernames:
When users search for any name on Twitter they can see a result which mentions that person's real name as well as the Twitter account username.
Results from people you follow
Normally, users are able to see "All" or "Top" Tweets; now they can also see Tweets about certain topics from the people they follow when "People you follow" is clicked. "Viewing Tweets about a topic from just the people you follow is a great way to find useful information and join the conversation," explains Twitter.
Back in April, Twitter updated both its iOS and Android app with features like advanced search and a refreshes Discovery tab. Using the Discovery tab, Android and iOS users can see the Activity feature which is a stream of updates. It will show up both tweets which are favoured or retweeted by people.
