Twitter makes it's search better

Twitter is planning to make  their search better to give better user experience. Santosh Jayaram (Twitter VP of Operations) confirmed that some changes are going to happen in twitter search. He was earlier worked as a VP in Google Search Quality team.

We all should feel glad to know about these changes, because twitter usually away from major changes. Any ways because of this most of the third party twitter tools making good money. Let them be happy.

Mainly Two things they were looking to change :

  • Indexing links in tweets
  • Reputation ranking system for tweets

Indexing Links in Tweets :

Currently search engines only able to crawl the text in the tweets but not links. They were planning to make the search engines to crawl the links too along with text in the tweets. So that people can get real time twitter results in the search engines too. Especially it gives users better search experience to those who are looking for timely content.

Reputation ranking system for tweets :

We all know that whenever we click on the trending topic, able to see lot of retweets. They are planning to give Reputation ranking system to these tweets. No one knows how the system is designed. Even the twitter engineers also not aware much about this, why because they are still figuring out that which works better. Hope this ranking system will give a great user experience.

The whole world is awaiting for these changes.
