Twitter adds photos and videos to search

Twitter just announced that it’s integrating photos and video results in it’s search product. It’s also added a whole bunch of new search tools to help productize it’s vast 140 character, influencer drive, hashtag laden linking ecosystem.

I’m excited to see Twitter make this move forward. Besides the fact that it just feels relevant for the platform, it fits nicely into my thesis around photos and social (as opposed to keywords and search).

This morning we heard Eric Schmidt talk about a gang of four at the D9 conference: Apple, Google, Amazon and Facebook changing the consumer web. I wonder if this makes Twitter part of a gang of five, or at least 4 1/2.

Viva la content:
