**Wasnt exactly sure where to put this, please move if need be**

Hi there. Ive noticed a problem with my tweets lately. The problem is that when I tweet something it doesnt appear in google if I search for it/my Twitter name OR when I search for the hashtag on twitter. This has just happened recently when all was working well. My profile isnt set to private.

Any ideas? Cheers

Twitter search is not reliable, and never been. Google indexes tweets but I suspect it depends on how many connections you have as for the priority given when indexing. Also note Google might not be able to keep up with all tweets - at 2,300 tweets per second it is a bit of an avalanche.

And moved to correct forum...

This is an interesting find!

http://www.google.com/realtime used to exist.  Now it seems that it doesn't.
