Twitter Rolls Out New Search [blog.twitter.com]
Today we're starting to roll out a completely new version of Twitter search. Not only will it deliver more relevant Tweets when you search for something or click on a trending topic, but it will also show you related photos and videos, right there on the results page. It's never been easier to get a sense of what's happening right now, wherever your curiosity takes you.

And if you use this new version of Firefox with Twitter, you can type a #hashtag or @username directly into the address bar to go right to a search results page (try #idol) or someone's profile page (like @nba). Simple.

140 characters + 26 letters + a handful of special characters = only so many combinations possible.

Why don't they just create every possible combination and be done with it?

I see so many duplicate tweets with only minor differences, not including re-tweets, that I would bet a good chunk of their search results are redundant.

It's too bad Twitter's search is not better. I think it has the potential to be very, very useful.
