The Real Time Web is changing how I consume information

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.
