For ages, Twitter has operated a standalone Twitter Search site in addition to allowing people to search from within Twitter.com itself. Today, that standalone site has gained a new location and been upgraded to match the Twitter.com search experience.
See More With Right Panel Support
Searching at Twitter.com makes it easy to perform a search and then pop-open a right panel to view more about a particular tweet. It also provides access to the relatively new images and video galleries related to search topics. To understand more about these features, see our previous in-depth articles:

Twitter Search itself lacked these additional features. Now it has gained them. The experience to doing a search using the dedicated site is the same as searching from your Twitter.com home page. By default, Twitter Search now also shows “Top Tweets” rather than “All Tweets.”
