Twitter has made it easier to find its millions of users on search engines by launching a new "Profiles Directory" tool.
The directory lists all user accounts alphabetically and includes profiles with numbers and non-Latin character names.
Twitter did not formally announce its new directory but instead quietly debuted the feature on the bottom of its homepage. "We launched this a few weeks ago," a Twitter spokesperson told CNET, "to help people find the accounts they're looking for with various search engines."
Facebook also has a profile directory, which looks almost identical to Twitter's new tool. Google Plus has account listings too, according to the Labnol blog, but user information is less accessible because it's within thousands of XML files.
