Autocomplete

We’re used to Google’s autocomplete function for search, and now we can expect to see the same on Twitter. When you start searching for a term, Twitter will suggest queries that you’re most likely to be interested in, as well as recognizing misspellings, with the equivalent of Google’s “did you mean” message, suggesting relevant search results.
