As reported last night that Twitter soon to launch its new “search and discovery” feature, the company has announced the new feature, dubbed as “Simple Search” through its blog post. This new feature will now offer autocomplete, spell check, related results relevant to the search query and will even show both real names as well as Twitter handles for every search you do. The one most sorted out best feature the update brings is searching of tweets of the people you follow. Further, which means the results do limited to your own social circle, instead of representing all results or the “top” tweets.

Here is what the company had to say about it:

We’ve also made several other improvements to make your search experience better.

Spelling corrections: If you misspell a term, we’ll automatically show results for your intended query.

Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, we will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.

Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like ‘Jeremy Lin,’ you’ll see results mentioning that person’s real name and their Twitter account username.

Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing ‘All’ or ‘Top’ Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the ‘People you follow’ view. Viewing Tweets about a topic from just the people you follow is a great way to find useful information and join the conversation.
