Google's already talked up its integration of real-time results -- read: Twitter -- into its search engine. Now it's making good on that pledge, and extending the benefits to its enterprise offering, according to a Datamation report.
Google passed a pair of mile markers on the road to real-time search this week, debuting the much-hyped Twitter integration for both consumers and enterprise users.
The No. 1 search engine had put the world on notice that real-time results were coming to its flagship Google.com site, holding an event on Monday at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., to show members of the mediawhat the feature would look like. But it had been unclear how soon Twitter streams, social media posts and news headlines would arrive on Google (NASDAQ: GOOG).
Now, they're here. But it's not just the consumer Web that's in line for Google's real-time makeover. The company is also now making the feature available on the Google Search Appliance, Google's enterprise search tool that indexes documents, databases, intranets and other business information.
