Twitter Top Tweet Search Results Now Displayed by Relevance Instead of Chronologically

 Twitter quietly tweaked its top tweet search results to display in order of relevance, rather than in reverse chronological order. Senior software engineer, search quality Lisa Huang announced the change in a blog post, saying users who were part of its test group engaged more with search results and spent more time on the social network.

If you still want to see the most recent live tweets, the “latest” filter is still there, as well as “news,” “photos” and “videos.” (Mashable)

Twitter has also been quietly testing a feature that could push it further into the news business. The social network is now sending some of its mobile app users push notifications about breaking news events that lead into relevant “moments”—or curated collections of tweets around a topic of note. (Mashable)

Twitter has reportedly been testing the feature for “months,” including with non-breaking-news topics, such as ABC reality-competition show The Bachelor. (SocialTimes)
