Twitter Baby-Stepping on Google's Turf?

Posted by andreaitis on March 6, 2009

There is pretty much no middle ground for Twitter.  My unscientific study tells me people either get it or they don’t, end-of-story.  But I’m saying, either way, don’t dismiss it.  Twitter is on to something  And not just the “i yawned’ kind of blip messaging. It’s early, and we’re seeing it evolve live and in person….but this new focus on search and trending is interesting for both consumers and advertisers.  Think of the potential as usage grows…


Twitter appears to be in the process of rolling out its integrated search feature with a search box and a trends button appearing on some user profiles today. While the feature is not yet available to all users, our guess is that it’s very much on the way – and soon.

The trends tab offers a drop down list of top ten trending topics (Chris Brown being the current most discussed topic), and the search box allows you to search in real time on any topic. Refresh your screen to see if you have the option yet, or take a look at our screen shots below.
