The social media company announced in a blog post it's built up an index of the "hundreds of billions of Tweets," because it's something it has wanted to do since its inception.
For now, you can access the new search functionality through Twitter's Advanced Search page. The company is rolling out the updated index to its apps and web services over the coming days.
