The microblogging network company Twitter just announced new "search autocomplete" and 'People you follow' search results, accompaying recent improvements such as "related query suggestions, spelling corrections and more relevant search results" -- making search easier on twitter.com, and related search suggestions.

Search autocomplete shows the most likely terms for a given query as it is entered -- "especially useful if you're trying to follow the hashtag for an event or you're looking for a certain Twitter account," Twitter informs.

You can select your query from the drop-down menu even before you finish typing it. After you enter your search, you'll find the most relevant Tweets, articles, accounts, images and videos for your query.

Search autocomplete and spelling corrections are also available on Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android.

In addition to aforementioned, Twitter also introduced following search improvements:

  • "Spelling corrections: If you misspell a term, Twitter will now automatically show results for your intended query.
  • Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, Twitter will now provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.
  • Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like 'Jeremy Lin,' you'll see results mentioning that person's real name and their Twitter account username.
  • Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing 'All' or 'Top' Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the 'People you follow' view," Twitter explains.

Also, Twitter is now localized in Catalan and Ukrainian, bringing the total number of supported languages to 30. In order to use Twitter in Catalan or Ukrainian, please go to your language settings today.

Twitter also gave a call to Afrikaans, Basque, Czech or Greek users to join the efforts to make Twitter available in those languages, visit the Translation Center and follow @translator.
