1. Future of comprehensive searching on a real-time basis
Microsoft had initially beaten Google by declaring the integration of Twitter data with their SERPs. Google responded to this move by releasing an initial test version of their integration with Twitter which is not really fully geared up for prime time. Google is known for acting hastily to deter other organizations to come into press limelight. But this has really not done Google any good as usability and relevance of this new feature is far from acceptable. The scenario is similar to Infoseek, 1997, where to get the top position, one just needed to be the most recent person to post a Tweet regarding any topic. In 2010 the number of queries which would be displaying results on real time basis is expected to diminish.
