Google loses Twitter access and suspends realtime search

Google Realtime search has been suspended. The reason has to do with the fact that Google’s access to the Twitter stream has ended. The realtime search page at Google just gives you a 404 page cannot be found.

The Twitter deal has been suspended for now because it has ended. The deal dates all the way back to October 2009 and ended today, the 4th of July.

While we will not have access to this special feed from Twitter, information on Twitter that’s publicly available to our crawlers will still be searchable and discoverable on Google

Is the companies word so far. Along with

Our vision is to have google.com/realtime include Google+ information along with other realtime data from a variety of sources.

We are in communication with our sources but do not know if Google is working to extend the deal even though a new Google realtime search is in the makes.

A Twitter spokes person provided the following quote:

Since October 2009, Twitter has provided Google with the stream of public tweets for incorporation into their real-time search product and other uses. That agreement has now expired. We continue to provide this type of access to Microsoft, Yahoo!, NTT Docomo, Yahoo! Japan and dozens of other smaller developers. And, we work with Google in many other ways.
