Twitter Expands Profile Search to More Users, Making It Easier to Find a Specific User's Tweets

This is a useful addition: Twitter has increased the distribution of its on-profile search feature, which allows you to run a keyword search of a specific user's tweets directly from their profile page.


As seen here, you can now search that user's tweets directly by tapping on the magnifying glass symbol in the top right corner of their profile, with the additional search criteria automatically included into your search.


In terms of functionality, this is no different from manually typing in the handle or utilizing Twitter's advanced search filters to retrieve someone's previous tweets. It does, however, make things a little easier, and as previously stated, it could be a useful addition to your tweeting process.


However, it may make it easier to track down someone's problematic past tweets. As a result, this could be a good time to double-check on your earlier Twitter posts in case someone wants to do a keyword search on your previous inferences.

Over the last few months, Twitter has been testing the profile search tool, with some users recently highlighted it in testing.


However, it now looks to have received a far bigger roll-out, as numerous Twitter users have noted.

We've reached out to Twitter for further information on the feature and its extended roll-out. Nevertheless, it appears that if you update the Twitter app, it will appear on profiles, simplifying your tweet discovery process.
