There are unconfirmed reports that Google will build a search engine that will allow users to better filter results – similar to the process currently used for a Google blog search.
With a growing number of people relying on Twitter (and other micro-blogging sites) for the latest news and trends, a universal search solution is desperately needed.
It is probably safe to assume that the priority of search results will be determined by Twitter prowess, including the number of tweets and retweets you have, the frequency in which you post, current events, frequently used keywords, and, of course, the number of followers you have.
We already know that Google is crawling Twitter, now we just have to sit back and wait for the other shoe to drop.
As if you needed another reason to become a more active Twithead!
