Twitter gets 2 thumbs up

About a month ago, Twitter released an update to its search in order to allow companies to connect with followers more readily, and listen to their input. Initial update was the auto-complete feature, and ?people you follow? results for searches for a simplified pursuit of hashtags. Even though these new features happen to be pretty drastic improvement for navigating through the universe of tweets, we have also noticed some impressive improvement to the search algorithm itself. The quality of the results have been steadily improving, and in a recent event where we manned the social media station, we were pleasantly surprised with the ease with which the audience was tagging along with our hashtags. Two thumbs up for Twitter, for this change ?
