Why search doesn't work?

Asked by Heikki Ketoharju on 2011-09-29

I would like to search certain hashtag. That isn't possible, because every time I press Ctrl+F, I get a message saying "NOT IMPLEMENTED YET". Is the search function hard to implement? Is there any other ways to make searches for hashtags?

Polly is pre-alpha, which means several features are not implemented yet. Search is not available yet not because of difficulty, but simply because other features took priority over it until now.

Also, proper implementation of search requires usage of the realtime API, which is what I'm working on right now.

A temporary, non-realtime version of hashtag search is currently available by clicking on hashtags.

Thanks Conscious User, that solved my question.

BTW, realtime functionality sounds really cool!

ok it has been a while dude and Search is still not available.

I understand this probably takes a LOT of work but I would like to make a request.

Search Functions that don't need realtime:
1. Hashtag Search - this is possible when you click in a tweet but I would like to enter a hashtag myself than rely on someone tweeting it to show in a stream or if it is trending.

2. User Search - you can load profiles in Polly which is awesome but you have to find them tweeting first. It would be great to be able to search for a username and load a profile that way.

This is kind of related but not exactly...it would be cool if you could insert the url somewhere of a tweet and then go to it directly from Polly.

For Example:
https://twitter.com/MichaelTunnell/status/324713128199847938

Then use the 324713128199847938 portion to display the tweet and maybe conversation.

That would be AWESOME!
