Twitter Search Results Add Photos, Recent Searches, More Context

by , Comments

Twitter has announced new search functionality for users. The new features weren’t covered in an official blog post; rather, the update was only mentioned in a tweet that said "Search update on See photos & accounts in results + recent searches & social context as you type your query."

What this means for users is a new way to find what they’re looking for with richer search results within Twitter. Searches now include more opportunity to explore past searches, profiles, tweets and images surrounding the search term.

With the new functionality, Twitter gives users context on how they’re connected with suggested profiles in the instant search results as the query is being typed:

And here are the new results that display when searching for the term “content marketing” (notice some spammers have already figured out how to game the system here):
