The Discovery Engine aka Twitter Search is coming our way. The folks at Twitter are saying that they are in the process of fine tuning the program and polishing up some parts that need shining up. On their web site they state that:
A few weeks ago we started testing Twitter Search in the web interface for a subset of folks. We had the search box way up near the top of the page and the results on a separate page. It turns out that’s not the awesome way to do it. The best way to experience Twitter Search is when it’s a natural part of your normal Twitter experience.
We went back to the original sketch and made everything far more awesome. Currently, a small subset of Twitter users are trying this new search feature in the sidebar of their Twitter home page. When you do a search, you don’t go to another page, the relevant tweets instantly show up where you’d expect them to—right on your home page where tweets love to be.
I only have one minor suggestion for the people at Twitter. I personally don’t like the name. I would even prefer Twitter Search as a name.
What about you? How do you think this will impact Google search?
