Twitter Revamps Search Function, Adds Photo Sharing
Twitter is rolling out a new way of searching to provide its users with more relevant tweets, including an easier way to sift through the millions of shared photos posted on the site each day.
Twitter will now show related photos and videos on the results page when someone searches for something or clicks on a trending topic.
In addition, for those using a new version of Firefox — called Firefox with Twitter — typing a #hashtag or @username directly into the address bar will now go right to a search results page.
Twitter will also be releasing a feature over the next several weeks that will allow its members to upload a photo and attach it to their tweets right from Twitter.com. This will eventually be available through the site's official mobile apps, Twitter wrote on its blog.
"For users without smartphones, we're working with mobile carriers around the world so you can also send photos via text message (MMS)," Twitter said.
