Real-Time Search Results for Twitter

In the past couple of months we have seen major events unfold and witnessed Facebook and Twitter become real-time news reporters. According to this article in the NY Times, there has been talks of search engines like OneRiot, Collecta and Topsy trying to incorporate twitter in real-time search results, but recently Microsoft and Google have reached separate agreements to include tweets into their search engines.

One question that the article raises is how will these real-time results produce a cash flow for twitter? Analysts mention that this might not be an easy task, and twitter's chief executive has already mentioned that it is not the primary focus of the agreements made.

One things for sure, twitter has definitely become a force to be reckoned with and it's great to see Google and Microsoft recognize this and want to include it into their search results.
