This amazing change has been named as “Tweet Index“, as it being referred to, is available on both the platform users, like web and mobile. This change is being offered to Twitter users via an “All” tab given near the search bar.
Twitter wrote in their company blog post that while all tweets have already been available in some or other form of the website, this is the first time ever in the history of Twitter that the users will be able to search the entire Twitter site for results.
Earlier, the users could only search a list of tweets, dating back a few weeks. While, this smaller body of work contains all the majority of tweets that users have tweeted or have been looking for, this larger body of work will provide fuller and richer searcher results of all the tweets. When you decide to select all the tweets, you need to go the search under the “all” tab and you will be easily able to see a collection of nearly 500 billion tweets from all across the globe.
Twitter is very proud to make the entire collection of tweets available to the public. The company’s blog describes the accomplishment as making available “eight years”…..worth of every day that consists of human experiences and major historical events. Now, Twitter is making available a search engine that excels at uncovering hundreds of billions of tweets as historical documents.
All of this has been accompanied in way that is efficient and time-saving. This is not going to be bothersome to users. The entire search is conducted within the parameter of 100 milliseconds.
