Twitter Updates its Search Results

Twitter has announced that it has revamped its search results on, making it possible for users to search the social network with features similar to Google’s Universal Search. As they type their queries users can now search photos and accounts as well as recent searches and social contexts.


Twitter’s updated search results panel now features accounts and photos. For any given query, Twitter search will first display people results, followed by top tweets and then photos related to the query. A new photo tab makes it possible for users to join both filters.

If you want to review your recent or saved searches on Twitter, now you can. The new Twitter search keeps track of and displays recent searches and saved searches.

Finally, the updated Twitter search also features a new filter called social context. As users type in a query, Twitter brings up accounts that are related to the query, including accounts that users are not following.
