Some Twitter users on iOS are starting to get access to a feature that makes it easy to find an individual user’s tweets. For those with access, when you navigate to a user’s profile, you will see a search icon in the upper right corner of the screen on the user’s profile banner, next to the three-dot menu. You can then type keywords to search for the user’s tweets. Twitter told TechCrunch that this feature is available to all global users on iOS and will continue to roll out slowly across the web and Android.

It was already possible to do searches like this on Twitter; I just needed to know how to format a Advanced search. So if you search for “from: @TechCrunch Twitter”, for example, you will be able to see all TechCrunch tweets that contain the word “Twitter”, regardless of whether you have access to the new search function. Long-standing Twitter Advanced search The function can be accessed by searching for something and then clicking on the three-dot menu next to the search bar on the web. You can filter searches by date, by the amount of participation, and more.

Still, this easily accessible search button makes it easy to find tweets from a specific user; therefore, using the same example, if you didn’t know how to perform an advanced search, it would be much easier to use the search button to search for “Twitter” in the TechCrunch account, rather than scrolling through dozens of daily tweets to find what you are looking for.

Of course, this feature may make it easier for people to dig up other’s troublesome old tweets. But, as always, it’s a great social media strategy to just not tweet potentially harmful content in the first place (also, delete old tweets).
