Twitter Search and 100x boost to search speed


Twitter search sucks

You know it. Lets jot down why?

  • It’s slow
  • It can only search for tweets sent in the past 10 days
  • It cannot search for direct messages
  • It’s not easy to search for tweets in your timeline
  • It’s not search-as-you-type like Google Instant (I know this is too much to ask for when the search itself is rudimentary)

CloudMagic is an answer for all this. Today, CloudMagic extends its search speed & simplicity to Twitter. Although CloudMagic cannot solve Twitter search as a whole, it helps you search for all your tweets/retweets, direct messages & tweets in your timeline – all of this search-as-you-type. Needless to say you can search for your tweets even when you are offline. Twitter is the first non Google service that CloudMagic is indexing & below is the consolidated list of all supported services:

  • Gmail
  • Google Apps Email
  • Google Docs
  • Google Apps Docs
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Apps Calendar
  • Google Contacts
  • Google Apps Contacts, and
  • Twitter

Yes, one search bar & you can search across all these services instantly!

Up to 100 times faster search results

CloudMagic is known for speed. It is already fast. Well, that doesn’t stop us from making it faster. Our internal tests have shown that the current release serves search results up to 100 times faster than before. Thanks to those optimizations under the hood. We believe that every collective second you save adds up to the overall search experience.

Easy & fast access to data = less frustration = more productivity!

We are excited about this release & would love to have your feedback. On a closing note, what other services would you like on CloudMagic?

Cheers,

PS: As new changes need reindexing of your data, the search results may not appear immediately after update.
