Twitter search...

for Bruce Schneier's people with readily identifiable homes and businesses who twit that they're leaving town for a week.

Update

My old English teacher used to say "don't use 15 words when 5 will do". Google could have shortened that statement to a single word: "Yes".

Makes sense to me.....

"Google Operating System has decided that Google's Microblogging service will operate much like Google's native Blog Search tool, sorting results according to how relevant they are - not just when they were posted. But again, this merely states the obvious."

A search tool for Twitter that is going to be "sorting results according to how relevant they are".

You know what..... that might be musically incorrect but I can't be bothered typing lots of HahHahs.... Just a moment though. I can use computer technology and...

More Useful?

"While we don't have anything to announce today, real-time information is important, and we're looking at different ways to use this information to make Google more useful to our users."

I fall to see how a search designed specifically to go through whether someone is thinking about making a cup of tea or is having a shit can possibly be described as "more useful"....

As long as they section it off as a separate search option (like groups, blogs or images) then that's just fine. I don't want to do a search on "train times", for example, and have to wade through 15 bazillion tweets complaining about how they're waiting for the train or the train is late or what-fucking-ever-I-don't-give-a-fuck to get to the train timetable site.
