Twitter and Google Real-Time Search Talks At Stalemate [telegraph.co.uk]
At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Twitter's chief executive revealed to the Telegraph that negotiations with Google on renewing the partnership had failed so far.

“We [Twitter and Google] just can’t agree on what the appropriate value exchange is. And I don’t mean that in terms of dollars...There are all sorts of details that we couldn’t come to grips with.”

Last week Google announced that it would index updates from its new social network, Google+, as part of an overhaul of its search engine that will focus on real-time information.

“Our vision is to have google.com/realtime include Google+ information along with other realtime data from a variety of sources,” a Google spokesman said.

The firm also plans to introduce support for hashtags to Google+, a move that will be seen as a direct challenge to Twitter.

It seems to me like the Google+ real-time may be stalling that progress.

The longer twitter fails to feed Google, the better it is for me. That alliance makes me nervous, more things out of our control and more of the internet controlled by Google.

Google's crazy though - depending on a third party for citation data for ranking purposes? It can go away to fast to for it be part of their business plan.

But I guess they've got to do something. THey're dying for social media inputs, and twitter/facebook are the places to get that data. Google+ still a fail.

I'm sure twitter realizes that and is keeping the price appropriately high.

I think price may not be a factor. Why google will rely on some other source for ranking if it is social media. Since google has launched google+ and dying to make it successful. Showing realtime results in SERP from its own product may result in gaining more visits and signups for Google+
