Twitter eliminates People Search - here is an alternative

Twitter users may have noticed that the People Search function on Twitter is now missing a tab. The only options they provide to find people is to invite from another network (gmail, Yahoo, AOL, MSN or Hotmail) or invite by email. The ability to search the site has been removed.

Don't fret, a close substitute is available. You can use Google. To make it easier I have customized my blog's Google Search feature that appears at the top of the sidebar. I have also reproduced the search feature below in this blog.



  1. Great Mark. Very useful - was very frustrating.

  2. Mark - This is very helpful. I'm building a list of Hospitals on Twitter, and your tool will make them easier to find.
