Twitter Search Limits

March 13, 2009

As Twitter has become more popular, I have become increasingly more frustrated with Twitter Search.

Yesterday while trying to research the source of the first Tweet regarding AOL’s naming of Tim Armstrong as Chairman and CEO, Twitter inexplicably terminated my ability to search.

This isn’t the first time I have been stopped from searching on Twitter.

The Twitter search cap occurs somewhere after 40 searches.

Would Google have become the utility it has for millions of searchers worldwide if it had limited how many searches its users could initiate?

Probably not.

If Twitter plans on making search a larger part of its product offering, it will need to remove its cap on the number of searches Twitter users can initiate.
