You can now search for your direct messages on Twitter

We know you’ve been waiting for the option to search your DMs. Now you can use the search bar in your inbox to find specific messages using keywords and names. pic.twitter.com/A41G8Y45QI— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) March 23, 2022. The new feature has been added to the Twitter mobile app – when you type something in the search bar at the top of your inbox, you’ll see additional filtering options – people, groups, or messages. If you chose messages, then the search will return DMs containing that particular keyword.

Good news for everyone who enjoys going back to the last letter of a message in their internet history. Twitter’s DM search box now includes a new function that allows you to search for specific messages using keywords. The search tool has been around for a while, but it only allowed users to find a specific individual or a group chat until recently. Twitter’s latest update allows users to narrow down their searches and identify stuff in their conversation history.

Highlights

  • Our colleagues at The Verge note that this new search option can go way back in time and return results from up to three years in the past. However, it seems that this is the threshold, and older messages won’t appear in the results. Twitter keeps on adding interesting new features, last month the company added the option to tip creators with Ethereum, and back in November last year, Twitter started showing previews for Instagram links.
