Twitter Integrates Search

For a while now, Twitter has been making use of the technology they acquired when they bought Summized back in July 2008, but until now this had only been available under a separate website.

The integration has taken a few months, but it appears to have finally made it through to the main site, as per the visions sketched during the discussions surrounding the partnership.

Since the early days, search has been an important element of Twitter:

"There is an undeniable need to search, filter, and otherwise interact with the volumes of news and information being transmitted to Twitter every second. We will be adding search and its related features to the core offering of Twitter in the very near future."

And it looks like the future has arrived, what's more, as well as being able to find who's Twitting about a particular topic, you're now even able to save your searches to return to them at a later date.

Give it a try!
