Twitter becomes a real-time search engine

Posted on 29 July 2009

Micro-blogging site had its makeover with homepage revamp. The homepage of Twitter has been redesigned and it appears to have improved its search capabilities.

By having a major update to Twitter’s homepage this micro-blogging site has now turned into a real-time search engine tool.


Those web users who want to know that what is happening in the world at a certain particular moment can now use Twitter without being logged on to the site.

In a blog post It has been said by Twitter founder Biz Stone that the redesign has been done to make Twitter more accessible to newcomers.

Now you can see Twitter’s search feature and Trending Topics section on the homepage, and the most popular topics can be instantly viewed by visitors that are being searched by minute, day or week.


Originally Twitter had marketed itself as a “service for friends, family and co-workers to communicate and stay connected”, but right now the new focus of twitter is to “share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world”.

This change to the homepage will not be noticed by regular users unless they sign out of their accounts.
