Does anyone else miss google real-time search? Is it ever coming back? I remember when it went missing (around the time of the London Riots) I assumed it was something to do with 'flash mobs'. When I went searching I found that Google was claiming its agreement with Twitter has expired. I thought that sounded fishy. I found the Twitter posts to be secondary. It was great for getting up to date info as it happened when a current event was happening in the form of articles. I remember using it when the mass animal deaths were happening and when the Osama thing happened.
I think the CIA doesnt want info out before they can screen it. Now the best you get with a google search is 'Past hour' In that 'hour' I assume the CIA has programs to scan for keywords so they can filter anything they dont want us to see/know. I think they definitley ensure that a google search with a keyword contains only what they allow.
I dont believe that a Twitter contract expired. I havent heard anyone question the whole 'real-time' disappearance thing. Is this a new conspiracy? Did I add my own spin at least?
