Twitter, the micro-blogging site has come up with a few changes in its ‘search’ this past week. This move comes as a welcome change for users as it enables them in finding other users, hashtags and mentions in a relatively easier manner.
Dubbed as Twitter’s “simpler search”, this feature allows users to ascertain more news in real time. Previously they had to come across situations such as entering the wrong name or misplacing a letter and consequently missing out on results. But the new upgrade takes these into account and makes the search more effective.
Twitter has also taken the move to bring in a ‘spell-check’ into effect as many users have come out in the open by saying they at times misspell terms. Twitter will now enable a user with results for what you may have meant, on similar lines with google search. The updation of these new features has improved the Twitter search experience to an enormous extent.
Also in the works has been the auto-completion for users which is all set to be rolled out over the next few weeks. This was made official by Twitter’s product team over a tweet.
All the user must do is type in a search term — for example, “India” or “SachinTendulkar”— to find appropriate topics or handles in record time.
Twitter also picks up significant and important suggestions from conversations people are having on the platform and gets it into the user’s mainstream.
Twitter also made updates to its iPhone and Android apps on Tuesday to include auto-complete. A few other mobile updates include compatibility with video tweets and expanded tweets from the site’s media partners, which comprises of Mashable, MLB and C-SPAN.
With these new updates and features, we can dare say that the Twitter Bird is looking smarter with the new hair cut!
