Twitter Improves Mobile Search: Top Tweets, Autocomplete & Web Browser
Twitter announced search upgrades to the Twitter mobile app. The upgrades includes an improved relevancy engine for top tweets, improved auto-completion for search and an easier web browser for results.
Top Tweets In Search Results
Some searches within the mobile Twitter interface may separate out top Tweets from the rest of the results. To see additional Tweets from this time period, tap on “View more from this time.” Here is an example of how this looks:
Search Auto-Complete Update
Now the autocomplete feature for searching or even tweeting is improved. You will now see more hashtag, topic and username suggestions as you type. In addition, the suggestions offered within autocomplete will be updated more frequently and feel real-time. Here is a screen shot:
Web Browsing Within Twitter
Now when you open a link from a Tweet that Tweet wil be displayed at the bottom of the app’s built-in web browser. So instead of using the default browser on the device, it will use the built-in browser. Twitter says “this provides additional context to the page you’re viewing, and makes it easy for you to retweet, favorite or reply to the Tweet as you’re reading an article or watching a video.”
