The Real Time Web is changing how I consume informationPosted: April 2, 2009
OneRiot released a vertical search engine today, focused on twitter URL’s.
The OneRiot beta search engine that has been available for a few months uses implicitly captured URL’s, while the OneRiot Twitter Search uses URL’s that are explicitly entered by twitter users. The content overlap is fascinating.
I ran a search for G20 at 9:47am:
- Google’s number one result is navigational, followed by News
- Search.Twitter has opinions and comments
- OneRiot Web search has News and Fashion
- Oneriot.Twitter.Search has news
The other real interesting fact for me is time. I ran my test search for G20 again at 10.10am:
- Google had no change
- Search twitter had 641 new updates
- OneRiot had replaced it’s number one result and lost the fashion reference
- OneRiot.Twitter.Search had 4 new updates
The Real Time Web is changing how I consume information.
I included screen shots of my results, and I would highly recommend trying the different engines to see the difference.
