Google and Twitter
A question was raised about Google’s ability to broadcast Twitter-like info. Should Google & other search engines take on this role? The idea behind news tweets is instantaneous info (reports while an event is happening). If Google were to take on this role, should this info be included in the search results? Can the technology weed out the majority of the info to pull out the truth from false? Can it establish ways to judge posts and authors’ credibility?
Google’s technology could handle this role for the most part (and it already does to some extent by indexing current content nearly every second), but it is not consistent with every web site (news pages naturally have priority). But how do you weed out the treasure truths from the garbage within a fraction of a second? Its like searching for a needle in a haystack.
