With Twitter letting users tweet and retweet, the timeline of a user’s profile can be a bit messy and hard to navigate, especially if that person is an avid tweeter and might post multiple times during the day.
If you’re trying to search for a specific tweet by a specific user, according to a report from XDA Developers, it appears that Twitter has started to roll out a new search feature for user profiles. In the app, users should be able to see a search button on a user’s profile page (including their own).
This will let users search for tweets that are specific to that user, instead of having to search the entirety of Twitter to find what they are looking for. If you don’t see the feature yet, don’t worry because it appears that it could be rolled out in stages where some users are reporting they don’t have it yet, while others do.
That being said, this isn’t actually a new feature per se. Twitter has in the past allowed users to search for tweets specific to users, but they had to use the “From:Username Term” shortcut. This meant that not everyone would have known about it, but this update will make it easier. If you don’t have the feature yet, you can still use the shortcut to the same effect.
