Makes account searches easier.


In a recent move, Twitter has launched its own search allowing users to browse through public profiles in alphabetical order.

The social network did not formally announce its new directory but instead quietly introduced the feature on the bottom of its homepage.

The new page is similar to existing directories available on other social networking websites including Facebook. In fact, Twitter’s latest tool looks strikingly like Facebook’s.

According to Search Engine Land, the move was made to make user profiles more discoverable by Google, Bing and other search engines. More search engine traffic means more page views, something to keep the advertisers happy.
