Google has begun adding real-time social media results to its search engine, pulling various feeds from Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
Google fellow Amit Singhal made the announcement at a press event held near the firm’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, on Monday.
“We are here today to announce Google real-time search,” he said. “This is the first time ever that a search engine has integrated the real-time web into the results page.”
Twitter messages and other fresh content will be made available on Google’s main search page over the next couple of days on all English language search sites. Real-time search results in other languages will be rolled out early next year.
