Twitter Search Can Now Be Filtered by News, Photos, and Videos

Twitter has added some cool new filtering features to its iOS and Android apps to make it easier to figure out what's happening in particular areas of interest.

Focused on discovery, both apps now offer the option to search for only pictures, videos, or news stories. Previously you could only search through usernames or entire tweets. The videos filter will be particularly popular among Vine users.Members also have the option to view All Tweets by toggling between top tweets and all tweets at the top of search results. This could be beneficial to people using Twitter for research purposes. It’s also worth noting that the results can be filtered to display only the tweets from people you follow.
