Get every tweet ever sent with new search engine


Twitter has launched a new powerful search engine that will help the subscriber to search every tweet that has been sent in the past.

In a blog post, Twitter search infrastructure engineer Yi Zhuang wrote that the company has built a search service that efficiently indexes roughly half a trillion documents and serves queries with an average latency of under 100 milliseconds.

It translates that you can search through every tweet sent on the service since 2006 when Twitter was launched.

Zhuang further added, since that first simple Tweet over eight years ago, hundreds of billions of Tweets have captured everyday human experiences and major historical events.

The search engine excelled at surfacing breaking news and events in real time, and the search index infrastructure reflected this strong emphasis on recency.

But the long-standing goal has been to let people search through every Tweet ever published, he added.

According to the company, the change will soon be available on desktop and mobile app versions of Twitter.
