We’ve just rolled out a great new feature that will help you find more awesome content from the Twittersphere! Introducing: The Koowala Search Bar.
The Koowala Search Bar works by letting you chose the type of content you want from a drop down. It has three search modes: Topic, Screen Name, and Keyword.
Topic – Start typing a topic. If its supported by Koowala, it will show up in the autocomplete under “Show news for topic…”. This is an awesome way to see the best topical tweets. Here’s an example of the “Food” topic .
Example Topics include:
Screen Name – Koowala supports more than 2000 screen names from popular twitter users. Try typing one in and, if we support it, we will show you the best tweets from that user. Try these out: @USWeekly or @ariannahuff
Keyword(s) – Enter keywords to search Koowala for tweets that match your criteria. This feature is still in beta, but will get better in the coming weeks and months. Checkout iPhone News or Pepper Spray
We are constantly increasing screen name coverage and improving the Koowala experience. If you have any comments or feature suggestions, please let us know!
We’ve just rolled out a new feature that lets you drill into your favorite news sources to get even more great stories! Try it out by clicking on the source (for example, @huffingtonpost) under any news story. This will take you to a Koowala page dedicated to that Twitter handle for a deeper reading experience!
What do you think of the change?
