Subscribing to Twitter searches could result in topic notifications
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Twitter appears to be working on a new way for its users to stay on top of emerging trends and discussions, in the form of a way to add notifications for Tweets about anything you might be looking for.
Twitter is working on a feature that will allow you to subscribe to search results. Once subscribed, you will receive push notifications for Tweets regarding your search query! pic.twitter.com/plTlt484oN-

The system appears to have been added at least partially to the latest version of Twitter’s test app, although the notifications themselves don’t appear to be active.
What this shows us, however, is that the feature is called Search Subscribe, and that in theory it will send you notifications about the topics you search for, if you choose to enable it on every search.
This seems handy if you’re looking for something fairly specialized, but we’d like to know what criteria would apply if you were to search for something that is constantly tweeted about.
To subscribe to notifications, simply press a new bell next to the search bar after typing your query. We can also assume that there will be a section in the app settings where you can edit and delete the notifications you are subscribed to in case you get tired of them.
Features added to test versions of Twitter are by no means guaranteed in the final application, so this feature may never see the light of day.
