Twitter for iOS recently received an update that includes a new search button on every user profile. The button is located in the top right corner of the screen letting any user tap it if they wish to search for specific tweets. The feature debuted earlier but has now begun rolling out widely in more countries across the world.
Previously, one would have to manually scroll through hundreds if not thousands of tweets from a user in order to get to the intended one. Alternatively, you’d have to do so through the app’s main search tab. From there you’d need to type out “from:” before a user’s name and then search for the tweet that you were looking for.
A number of Twitter iOS users have begun noticing the feature as reported by 9To5Mac. This means that it will likely show up on your iPhone sooner or later if you haven’t received the update yet.
The search button definitely makes it much easier to even find past tweets that you’ve posted. So, this might be the perfect time to finally clean up that timeline in case you really have to. The button lives next to the more button that hovers over profile cover photos in the top right corner no matter what profile you’re looking at.
The search button is just part of the numerous new features that have been coming up lately on Twitter. This follows the global rollout of Super Follows on iOS letting users monetise their accounts or some of their content on the site. So we definitely expected more to come in the coming months.
