    Painfully obvious question – do Bing and Yahoo still have access to the Twitter Firehose?

    i searched few keywords yesterday in Google to get its Realtime results..but, unfortunately i didn’t get any. I thought it might be a temporary server down, but now i got confirmation that latest trend tweets from twitter won’t be accessible from Google Realtime Search.. It’s very sad to know about this…Google should have extended their contract for more years..:-)

    I was really upset about Google dumping the real time search, i used it almost everyday however I have come up with a temporary solution .Twitter does have it’s own search engine if any one cares to try it See what’s happening — right now.Just drop in a key word, same as the pre-Google one.It’s better than nothing, give it a whirl.

    As much as I like Google, you just can’t depend on them. Now I am on Google + and don’t know if I should be excited about it. I was excited about Wave too and where all know how that ended.

    @Matt you can’t depend on Google I totally agree nor it seems twitter for, changing it’s search engine page. My above comment url does not work and it’s not a redirect either.So then to all the people who have tried the link “Sorry” here it is again. See what’s happening on twitter

    You can make your own Google realtime search with Google’s own tool Google CSE. I made an example http://www.google.nl/cse/home?cx=013102886975272672155:tcvpuuqqteq

    The funny thing is that the Real time link in the main menu is not gone yet: http://twitpic.com/5li6up/full (this is the italian Google homepage).

    I think they are planning to return real time search back soon.

    A big mistake by Twitter if you ask me.. They should do everything they can to be featured like that in Google..

    Techcrunch’s Arrington has long argued that the main value of Twitter is its real-time search engine of posts. If Twitter is about broadcasting to large audience, there is no audience larger than the gazillions of people searching on Google. As G+ acquires critical mass, expect Google to create a Google News-type real-time aggregation of G+ posts. If you saw how Google insidiously inserted Google Places into search results above Yelp, Expedia, and Trip Advisor listings (while scraping their reviews) — I could imagine Google beginning to priority index G+ posts or perhaps adding a real-time G+ news box next to a Google results page. G+ (minus Twitter) is Google’s real-time search engine. A longer post on this is here: http://bit.ly/mRGf3M

    Hey folks!

    I found your website today via Google while searching about Twitter’s new search upgrade. This article above is the second I’ve read from your website today, and like the first one I read 5 minutes ago, this article has far too many grammatical errors.

    I understand we all make mistakes, but please consider proofreading your work before publishing. After finding this error in your 3rd paragraph, “Google also stressed that went Google Realtime Search relaunches…” I stopped reading and decided to comment here instead. I’ve chosen not to finish this article.

    Here’s to improvement, thanks.
