Twitter on Friday introduced search autocomplete and 'People you follow' search results to twitter.com.
Search autocomplete shows users the most likely terms for their query as they enter it. Users can select their query from the drop-down menu even before they finish typing it.
Twitter will return the most relevant Tweets, articles, accounts, images and videos for each query. The company has also made several other improvements to the search:
- Spelling corrections: If you misspell a term, Twitter will automatically show results for your intended query.
- Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, Twitter will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.
- Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like 'Jeremy Lin,' you?ll see results mentioning that person?s real name and their Twitter account username.
- Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing 'All' or 'Top' Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the 'People you follow' view.
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.
