This feature is slowly being rolled out, so not all will be able to see it at the moment. In the meantime though, SearchEngineLand has posted a series of screenshots of Twitter’s new search system. From now on, when you search something, the results will be broadly classified into three categories—People, Photos and Social Context.
As seen in the screenshots above, a search for ‘Google Glass’ shows the people associated with the term, followed by Top Tweets and then Photos. Also while typing a term to search, Twitter will show you the people you follow associated with that term, while also suggesting you new ones to follow.
As mentioned above, this feature is being slowly rolled out and in the coming weeks Twitter will be most of us will get to see the new search.
