- New Twitter profile searching is rolling out to iPhones.
- It lets users look through a profile for tweets using a new search icon and tool.
Twitter is rolling out expanded searching on profiles to all iPhone users on the latest version of its app.
According to XDA Developers:
As noted, a new button in the top right-hand corner of a user's profile now features a search icon. Tapping on it lets you search through the tweets of a specific user, including your own.
The feature first appeared last month, noted by social media guru Matt Navarra:
