Google Realtime Search Twitter results killed off

Twitter-supplied live rolling info scrapped

Google and Twitter deal comes to an end, as Big G switches focus to Google+.

Google’s Realtime Search, which saw live, continuous Twitter updates appear as part of search results, will no longer include tweets. The reason? Twitter and Google’s hook-up simply expired on 2 July.

The Big G has said that it will now aim to replace Twitter-supplied news with that from its new Google+ social network, as well as, “…realtime data from a variety of sources.”

Twitter and Google say this isn’t war and that the two tech titans will work on various projects away from Realtime Search. It does, however, make live information delivered through Google a lot less richer.
