Twitter Real Time Warp Search?

April 14, 2009

Although real time search is one of the many heralded utilities of Twitter, it seems the average consumer’s attention isn’t quite as focused in the present as Twitter’s search results are – at least at this particular moment in time.

According to Twitter’s trending topics: Easter is the most popular topic of conversation in the Twitterverse – this Tuesday two days after Easter Sunday.

Twitter Audience Segmentation and Real Time Inline Search

April 2, 2009

Twitter has begun testing real time inline search within some Twitter accounts.

From the Twitter blog:

Currently, a small subset of Twitter users are trying this new search feature in the sidebar of their Twitter home page. When you do a search, you don’t go to another page, the relevant tweets instantly show up where you’d expect them to—right on your home page where tweets love to be.

I have the new Twitter search box in my account and find its inline search results much more convenient and practical.

Organizing the Twitter audience will prove key for Twitter and its users to monetize their Tweets. segments the Twitter Audience albeit through manual searches. is a pretty cool tool.

I am not sure how far back mines Tweet data for keywords.

Recently I have noticed Twitter has begun reducing the amount of search history available for some search terms.

I would guess Tweet Trails keyword histories are also constrained by the same parameters Twitter now imposes on Twitter search.
