google says ciao to real-time


Shock horror, more earth quakes in the shaky isles today.
They are coming more frequent, & closer to home… but I was concerned this time, as my dearest, better looking, other is down at the recent epicenter, of this years quakes.
She’s OK, Christchurch wasn’t affected by this last roll of the Earth’s crust… it was more centered on where I’m heading tomorrow 🙂

So I refered to the same method I’ve used to track the natural disasters that’ve hit my adopted home this last year, Earthquakes, Tornadoes etc.
I tried searching Google real-time #eqnz to find:

404. That’s an error.
The requested URL /realtime was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

WTF no more Google real-time

It seems from the story here @ Social Barrel that:

Google said that the 2009 contract of acquiring data from Twitter has passed its expiry date, and both companies failed to renew the agreement.

Google assume that “Google +” will supersede Twitter!
I haven’t even received an invite yet & google are casting aside the established medium.

No more can I search for hash tags via google, shit I’m gonna have to use Bing aka Microsoft!
But it’s just not the same.
All things move in circles I guess.

I’m quite in shock, how do you feel about this?
