Twitter Search to Become “Discovery Engine”

Today Twitter co-founder Biz posted a blog post outlining the details of their new “Discovery Engine,” which is basically search built into your home page.

Apparently the folks at Twitter have realized that isn’t the greatest implementation of search ever and want to change that.

Biz says that currently, a small number of Twitter users are already trying the new search feature in the sidebar of their Twitter home page and that when they do a search the relevant tweets instantly show up right on their home page.

Twitter has also commented on the “save” search feature, allowing you to save searches you’ll do regularly and trends, which is basically the same thing you get currently on

The only disappointing bit of news is that it’s not set for a scheduled release and will be available “as soon as possible.”
