Google Loses Access to Twitter Stream, Suspends Realtime Search


Realtime search was suspended after Google’s contract with Twitter for access to the full feed of public updates passed its expiration date on July 2, 2011, according to information Google shared with Search Engine Land. The original Twitter search agreement dates back to October 2009.

With Google Plus expanding and with the hopes of +1 being a more active area to connect (without the 140 character limit) the tweet stream is drying up.
