Somebody with a name John Doerr send a cool new search shortcut on Twitter.com. If you type in “sp” anywhere on the page (but not in the search box or the Tweet box) a new “search photos” box will appear that will search only photos. If you do that, you get a nice visual grid of photos people have Tweeted out, reports TechCrunch.
Try typing in “cats” and see what you get.
Here’s what you get after typing in “cats”:
There is an even cooler shortcut search for videos. Type “sv” and a “search videos” box comes up. Results also appear in a grid and once you play one it goes to a timeline view. After years of only a spare stream of 140 characters and links, the visual display is almost startling. But it’s a glimpse at what Twitter could look like if it didn’t try to hide away all the visuals.
Keyboard shortcuts, by the way, have always been a subtle part of the New Twitter design. Others you can play around with include “n” for new tweet, “r” for reply, “t” for retweet, and “m” for direct message.
