A new look for search coming soon

Twitter has been trying to help user find more tweets lately and it partnered with Google to show tweets in search results.

Twitter's test run search template

Twitter has been making a lot of changes lately to its services in an effort to improve user experience.

It has been trying to help user find more tweets lately and it partnered with Google to show tweets in search results. It retired the “discover” tab and replaced it with a more detailed trend summary to provide context and encourage users to click.

Twitter is now testing a new search design as well, one that looks less choked than the current version.

The new design takes a lot of the filter options from the left-hand side and puts them on top of the page. That steps up the trends section, leaving more space for the new summaries that come with them.

The general idea of what Twitter is trying to achieve with this is to make Twitter search more manageable, and hence, more likely to be used. Search has been a problem for Twitter since forever, and the real time setting of the social network makes finding old tweets very hard.

The new design may or may not help given the new tabs, but at least it looks a lot cleaner.
