On Tuesday, Twitter announced that it has composed a search list for every tweet ever published on its social networking site.
Earlier, it was a really frustrating task to search past tweets on Twitter. The social networking site merely presents tweets that were posted a few days ago. Therefore, it is a big development for the company as it makes easier for people who wish to re-read older tweets of celebrities.
The engineers of Twitter have named this new feature “Tweet Index”. The company has launched it for both the web and mobile users. It will allow users to look for a tweet with the help of date or particular month.
Twitter informed in its blog post that the new feature will make the search a better and more preferable option for the users. It is certainly a huge step towards the improvement of the content of this social website.
However, the feature offers two different options through which users can find a specific post. First one is the ordinary search bar located at the top of the Twitter page. It is certainly a very useful option for breaking news and other real time events. Nevertheless, the alternative search feature is known as the Advance Twitter Search that will allow the users to search tweets related to a particular event and timelines. It is fuller and richer search option as it displays results from both the new and the old public tweets of the users. A single search will offer more than 500 billion tweets from the past eight years.
