New Twitter search button added to iOS app, to search specific accounts

Share This Post

A new Twitter search button has been added to the iOS app, making it easier to search the tweets of a specific user …

XDA Developers first spotted it.

We have discovered that a Search @Username’s Tweets button is appearing on the latest (stable) version of the iPhone app.

This new button — located in the top right corner, next to the 3-dot menu — allows iOS users to dig through their own Tweets or any other account’s. When you click it, you get a search field where you can enter the term(s) you’re looking for. Once you hit enter, you will be taken to a screen similar to that of the existent search functionality. There the search term will change to: From:Username Term.

As the site notes, the functionality itself isn’t new. You could always do this manually using the “from:<username> <searchtext>” format.

However, this feature was not very discoverable, and the new Twitter search button is expected to make it much more accessible to a broader variety of users.

Twitter frequently beta tests new features by making them available to a small number of users, but this one looks to be going out to all users.

This is not the only change to Twitter this week; the business has enhanced its Instagram connection.

 The company says that Twitter Card previews will start rolling out today. “Now, when you share an Instagram link on Twitter, a preview of that post will appear.”

This means that when someone shares an Instagram link to Twitter, you’ll see a preview of the Instagram post in the Twitter application, just like you do for most other links shared on the platform.

The company’s budget for new features may be slightly smaller: According to a recent study, Apple’s app privacy policy may cost social media businesses about $10 billion in the second half of this year.
