waiting for the option to search your DMs for message content? we’re working on releasing that later this year!”
It was expected of Twitter to add a search option which will allow users to search for a particular words or content they have even shared in DMs. This feature that will allow users to search for specific words or contents is being anticipated to arrive later this year. The big social media platform is also working on allowing users to search content of messages and not only just the sender.
The feature is going to drastically expand how helpful that DMs search bar is surfacing older messages or conversation and even actual words which you have typed in those conversations sometimes.
