A new search button is now appearing on profile pages on the Twitter iOS app. With the feature, users can easily search for specific tweets from a specific account. According to XDA Developers, the feature has now been rolled out to all iOS users, after social media consultant Matt Navarra discovered in October it was available to some users.
“We have discovered that a Search @Username’s Tweets button is appearing on the latest (stable) version of the iPhone app,”XDA Developers notes.
“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.”
Previously, users had to use the format “from:[Twitter handle] [search term]” in the general search box to find tweets from specific accounts but the addition of the search button on profile pages makes it easier. It is not known yet when the feature will be available on the web or Android.
The new update is one amongst a host of other new features Twitter has been adding to its platform. The company added an Instagram card for previews earlier in November for all users recently made it possible for all iOS users globally to Super Follow select creators.
