The Web version of Twitter has new search filters that let you restrict your searches to photos, videos, news, people you follow, and nearby locations.
The ability to limit a search to only people you follow is particularly useful, as I often find myself searching my timeline for a tweet I saw earlier.
Twitter revealed the new features today with a tweet, but it’s not clear exactly when the filters began rolling out. Earlier filters let you specify whether you were searching for photos or people.
The official iOS and Android Twitter apps got new search filters last November. Twitter’s Advanced Search feature still exists for those who need the extra search operator functions.
