Please note, this blog entry is from a previous course. You might want to check out the current one.

If a user touches an entry for a hashtag or a user in the “mentions table view” that you created in Required Task 2 above, you should segue to show the results of searching Twitter for that hashtag or user. It should be searching for hashtags or users, not just searching for a string that is the name of the hashtag or user (e.g. search for “#stanford”, not “stanford”). The view controller to which you segue must work identically to your main Tweet-viewing view controller (TweetTableViewController).

Create a segue from the keyword cell to the initial table view controller (and name its identifier):

Preparing the segue set the search text to the text of the current text label (and for now we ignore that this will also fire searches for mentioned links):

    private struct Storyboard {
        static let KeywordSegueIdentifier = "From Keyword"
    override func prepareForSegue(segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: AnyObject?) {
        if let identifier = segue.identifier {
            if identifier == Storyboard.KeywordSegueIdentifier {
                if let ttvc = segue.destinationViewController as? TweetTableViewController {
                    if let cell = sender as? UITableViewCell {
                        ttvc.searchText = cell.textLabel?.text
