The trend of search engine is moving very fast. Google is still preferred search engine by many people. But, Twitter search is becoming more popular as it is based on real-time search results. You can get latest updates within seconds as new search results from Twitter search. Unlike, Google or any other “traditional” search engines, the results will be same for a longer time frame. It is one of the reason why Twitter becomes so popular within short period of time. People want to know the latest update of any news. It’s not that google update any new contents from news site slow, but it is still not fast enough when it compared to Twitter.
Of course, that is why we call Twitter search as real-time search engine. Is this how our future search engine is going to be? Google is frequently changing their algorithm based on various factors especially, backlinks, relevancy, content update date, and more. Of course, you can’t include all the content in 140 words. But, the concept of search results in google, also will only excerpt of full content in 160 words but much older content. With increasing popularity among news channels, directories, forums and more updates on Twitter, I think we are heading towards real-time trend soon.
I know it is a very controversial topic to discuss difference between real-time search engine like Twitter search and common search engine like Google. Everyone knows that Twitter is an addictive platform and those who in this network prefers to get real-time answers to their question. Personally, I will look search for question on Twitter search before sending a tweet asking about to my followers. I’m sure most likely everyone will hear what their friends recommend instead of clicking some links on search engine and finding it on our own.
