Google : How to search in realtime the web and twitter (and more options!)

   Posted January 14, 2010 by Jimmy Selix in Google

This is a quickie recipe for those search junkies. Google just recently announced/added the ability to search in real-time social networks such as twitter. By default, these options are not turned on when you do a Google search. Lets take a look at what we got!

Do a search for what you want to find, in our example: nfl playoffs

You’ll get your typical google search results.

default google search

Next to Web, you should see a + sign and Show options link. Click on it.

It will now expand the left pane with a ton more options. You can limit your results to blogs, images, videos, forums, books, etc and also change the view to realtime latest.

Click on Latest. You’ll notice that twitter public feeds will show up and update as they are posted.

google latest view

Enjoy!
