No one would argue with me when I say twitter search is a very useful thing. Now it’s getting better.

Twitter search used to crawl only the text in tweets, soon it’ll start crawling links in tweet and index the pages making it almost an alternative to google search for upto the second information.

The trending topics will integrate reputation ranking system which ranks the search results on the basis of reputation of the person. How this reputation will be calculated is still unknown, though I think the number of retweets and linking will be taken into consideration.

The ranking system would help twitter search in reducing or eliminateing the noise by removing retweets and irrelevent content.

Other changes – Twitter follower notification emails have changed from plain text to full html earlier today. It now gives information like the number of people the user is following, how many people are following the user and the total number of updates tweeted. Now with all this information it is easier to weed out spammers. Addition of user’s bio and last 5 or 10 tweets would have been more helpful.

Note: the lack of pictures is because I wrote the entire article on mobile. Sorry.
