Twitter has announced that older Tweets are now available when searching on its site and mobile apps. Prior to this update it was only possible to see Tweets that were about a week old via Twitter’s search.
Paul Burstein made the announcement in a blog post stating that “We look at a variety of types of engagement, like favorites, retweets and clicks, to determine which Tweets to show. We’ll be steadily increasing this percentage over time, and ultimately, aim to surface the best content for your query.”
The update is available now on both the desktop and mobile version, however you will need to update your mobile app before being able to access the new feature.
