Twitter Tests Search-Centric Interface (We've Got Screenshots!)

Twitter is testing an interface that incorporates new search features. The interface is an attempt to keep it simple by using the original Twitter design. The test has been rolled out to a subset of people. I was pleasantly surprised to sign in and see my profile was getting the test page. Now I get to show you what's up!

First up, the search box is included on the sidebar. Previously, Twitter was testing a search box in the top right navbar. You'll also notice trends underneath the search box.

Next, the search results appear right there on the homepage, where you would normally see the Tweets from your Tweeps.

You can also save your search if you wish to return to it at a later date. When you do, it lists the search under the search box:
