It is currently unclear when Google Realtime Search will relaunch, but Google added that it will "remain open" to working with Twitter in the future
During the Fourth of July weekend,
Google Realtime Search went offline
due to an agreement expiration, and now, Google+ content is looking to squeeze in its place.
Google Realtime Search was a feature that allowed Google search results to include realtime information from Twitter, Facebook, blogs and more. It went offline on July 2 because Google's agreement with Twitter expired that day, taking much of the realtime content with it.
"Since October of 2009, we have had an agreement with
to include their updates in our search results through a special feed, and that agreement expired on July 2," said Google in a statement. "While we will not have access to this special feed from Twitter, information on Twitter that's publicly available to our crawlers will still be searchable and discoverable on Google. As for other features such as social search, they will continue to exist, though without Twitter data from the special feed."
Twitter also noted that it still works with Google in other ways, and that it continues to offer this service to others like Microsoft and Yahoo. But without Google, Twitter can no longer offer its archive search.
But this isn't the end for realtime results on Google. The next step is to
incorporate Google+ material
on Google Realtime Search when it relaunches.
"Our vision is to have google.com/realtime include Google+ information along with other realtime data from a variety of sources," said Google.
It is currently unclear when
Google Realtime Search
will relaunch. Google added that it will "remain open" to working with Twitter in the future.
In other news, a Google+ app was
sent to Apple for approval
over the Fourth of July weekend, which will make the new social networking service available to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in the near future.
