Google Adds Twitter Archive Search [googleblog.blogspot.com]
Starting today, you can zoom to any point in time and “replay” what people were saying publicly about a topic on Twitter. To try it out, click “Show options” on the search results page, then select “Updates.” The first page will show you the familiar latest and greatest short-form updates from a comprehensive set of sources, but now there’s a new chart at the top. In that chart, you can select the year, month or day, or click any point to view the tweets from that specific time period.


The replay feature is rolling out now and will be available globally in English within the next couple days. For our initial release, you can explore tweets going back to February 11, 2010, and soon you’ll be able to go back as far as the very first tweet on March 21, 2006.

I really want to say something positive, but isn't that a bit like clipping coupons from last year's newspaper?

Maybe interesting on a macro scale: if you're able to compare the volume of tweets between two competing brands, or to analyze which of your competitor's tweets resulted in the largest growth in followers.

I just read that the US Library of Congress is adding the entire Twitter archive. Serious.

For me it's like searching for edible fibers in manure, but surely there is someone out there who has a use for that.

There are available and useful nutrients (especially proteins) in many manures. Cattle manure can be safely processed and used to manufacture economical feed for poultry.

Or, is that not what you are talking about?

Heh. I think there's more out there in the historical Twitterverse than just coupon codes.

Just in the last 12 months, consider all the grass-roots reports, observations & campaigning and peer-to-peer discussions on national elections, on the protests in Iran, on the disasters in Haiti, Chile and now China...

This is going to be a tremendously useful tool for researchers, historians, academics and journalists.

Well done, Google.

You took my words, exactly what I meant, only cattle manure would be tweets and poultry to feed, for instance, cuil and their cpedia, as economical as it gets. Millions of cpedia quality articles could be fed with these useful nutrients ;)
