Twitter Introduced Search Autocomplete And Search Within People You Follow

Twitter has introduced new search features.

  • Search Autocomplete And
  • Search Within People You Follow

In addition to recent updates to searching feature these two new features would be making twitter search more complete by putting you closer to what you are looking for.

Search Autocomplete displays a dropdown set of like keywords while you enter them in the search box. It is more useful if you are searching any topic with hash-tag.

Following list gives a brief introduction to new features. List was released by Twitter with its new search update:

  • 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.

Here are some tweets showing how people reacted on this new feature:

Features of related search suggestions, search autocomplete and spelling corrections are also available in Twitter for iPhone and Android.

Should I Change My Mind For New Samsung Galaxy Note Sporting 5.5 Inch Screen

I am not sure whether I should change my mind for Samsung’s new Galaxy Note sporting 5.5 inch screen. It is inconvenient for holding in one hand or against your face but size doesn’t matter if the stuff you carry makes you to keep other stuff aside. Likewise hanging a laptop on you shoulder, holding a tablet in your hand and still keeping a mobile in your pocket is a bad idea.

Nexus 7 is not a subject related to failure of Google Plus. Google Plus was better than Facebook, it was well integrated, fast and really open (unlike to Facebook) but it failed because it was not having critical mass that Facebook already gained. Same thing happened with Facebook’s Email service. This time Facebook was lacking critical mass unlike to Gmail. But quoting this we cannot say that Facebook’s Email service was bad or Google don’t know how to work with social networking.

Nexus 7 and Samsung’s new Galaxy Note both works on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But I suppose Google knows better working with Android than Samsung.  Samsung was only Android’s marketing vehicle before the existence Nexus 7.

Android is Google’s baby that Google adopted keeping in mind all his services that is why using Android in any machine prompts you to login with your Google Account so that you can get connected with Google services and hence connecting & using Google account becomes most useful and important activity on any Android machine. I have used other Android machines and a few of them like Sony Ericsson Xperia fail to connect with Google account and you get confused between hardware and software conflicts. So why not use Nexus 7 where everything comes to Google and using Google’s machine for Android is a better option as it would be working better than anything else.  So I’ll be waiting till October for Nexus 7 release in India.
