Twitter Finally Makes it Easy to Search Other People’s Tweets

Available to iOS users

No longer will humanity have to suffer by aimlessly scrolling through Twitter to find that perfect old tweet sent by a politician or celebrity. 

Twitter has instituted a new search bar that allows you to easily scour through the tweets of an individual user, as reported by XDA Developers. This feature had been in beta for a while but just rolled out to all iOS users.

You have to download the latest version of Twitter’s iOS app to access the search bar. There has been no word as to when or if this feature would roll out for Android users or for those who prefer the web-based Twitter client. 

Twitter always allowed this action but made users jump through some hoops to do it. Prior to this, you’d have to use From:Username Term modifier in Twitter search or get creative with Google.

The social media giant has been busy as of late, officially rolling out a subscription service, Blue, back in June for users in Australia and Canada, and testing new features with those subscribers. Twitter Blue lets you undo tweets, add custom color schemes, and more.
