Twitter has launched another update to its microblogging platform that now allows users to search for specific messages in the Direct Message (DM) feature. Previously, users had the ability to search in the DM but could only search for users or groups. Last year, Twitter launched the search bar for DM for its Android app and noted the ability to allow users to search for specific content in the DM. Twitter’s DM search feature was launched for the iOS app two years before the Android app.
In a tweet, Twitter announced that users will now be able to search for specific keywords and names in their inbox using the search bar. Twitter will show three options – people, groups and messages – when users search the DM. Users can now search for specific messages using the new feature.

Twitter first announced the keyword search feature for DMs in May last year when it launched the search feature for its Android app. Back then, users only had the ability to search for specific users or groups that they were a part of. However, the search feature was launched in 2019 for its iOS app.
Earlier this week, Twitter announced that iOS users would now be able to capture GIFs from in-app cameras. Users can share GIFs by clicking New tweets Button, tap Photo iconThen Camera iconConfirm selection GIF Mode, and then press and hold Record button. At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be any option to share GIFs outside of the platform. Twitter only allows users to share a link to a GIF, implying that there is no option to save the GIF to a computer or smartphone.
