Today Twitter announced a couple of new features that are coming to its official iOS and Google Play apps. The first is search filters for easily discovering different types of media, like photos or video. You can also toggle the results to only see related tweets from accounts you follow.
Here’s a Vine of the new search filters:
“We’re also making it easier to find out more about trends and events,” adds Twitter. “A new trending timeline in Discover shows you trends along with associated Tweets, and you can also see trending TV shows and nearby events.”
Twitter has been focusing more on embedding rich media like photos and video in-line with tweets. The trending topics timeline will hopefully replace the confusing mess in the current Discover tab.
The update will be available soon in the App Store.
