With advent of micro blogs like Twitter and other sites the concept of real time search is starting to come to reality. Real time search allows you to take pulse of what is going on in society at that moment.
Real time search engines are the next para-dyne shift in the search engine industry. If we step back we first had the internet classified by directories (Yahoo), then the most popular sites by content relativity and link backs (Google). Now the race is on for real time search engines allowing the user to become like the NSA and tap into societies converstations and thoughts.
