Twitter proves again it is the real-time web.
A 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit Northern California, minutes ago. After I felt the shake, Twitter confirmed it happened seconds later without me asking.
A quick search on Twitter gets me to relevant news and links from real people.
Google doesn’t even know that the earthquake occurred.
Here’s the most important point.
Twitter told me about the earthquake before I asked.
Google did not know about it when I asked.
