Google / Twitter
I had blogged about my thought that Google should buy Twitter to provide more real-time search. Seem that a deal is with Twitter is not imminent. Read this post on GigaOM on what might Google do about losing the battle to provide search for the "now web".
Here is what I think Google might do: Twitter has a great pulse on current happenings but details of real newsworthy information is still being posted on the blogs. Google should build a real-time indexing for sources that have the most current information and tag it to allow users to follow the most relevant information. Google can then allow users to comment on the stream on information Google produces. Let us see if Google managed to address this evolving opportunity.
How about calling it Google Pulse?
