Bing integrated the twitter results into its search results first. And now according to Google, realtime search is now live (Whoa, they did it too)….
Google gets information from twitter, from more than a dozen new search technologies that enable us to monitor more than a billion documents and process hundreds of millions of real-time changes each day. Google also made it official that it has now partnered with Facebook, MySpace, FriendFeed, Jaiku and Identi.ca — along with Twitter, which was announced a few weeks ago.
From the Google blog:
Our real-time search enables you to discover breaking news the moment it’s happening, even if it’s not the popular news of the day, and even if you didn’t know about it beforehand. For example, in the screen shot, the big story was about GM’s stabilizing car sales, which shows under “News results.” Nonetheless, thanks to our powerful real-time algorithms, the “Latest results” feature surfaces another important story breaking just seconds before: GM’s CEO stepped down.
If you want to see real-time search first look video:
Techcrunch also has a nice write up about Google’s new realtime search technology! BUT it’s funny that they compare Google’s realtime search to the speed of light . You can find some screenshots, videos and more information on the latest techcrunch’s post here.
