Twitter today announced that its Direct Message (DM) search feature is now available to all users, allowing anyone to search through the DMs they've received.

The new search bar is located above the the DM interface in the Twitter app or on the web and it can be used to locate conversations with specific people and groups.

DM search first debuted in August, when Twitter said that it was testing out the feature. Some users have had the search bar since then as part of the test, but as of today, it's available for everyone.

Twitter can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

There’s plenty of third party twitter clients that don’t have the news section. Tweetbot is a great one I use, it only shows stuff from people you follow.
Thanks. Wish I knew about that sooner. Twitter just feels like its lost its value proposition to me.
