Cartoon of the Week: Google Gets Real (-Time)


The rise of the citizen journalist has made it common for news to break on Twitter before it’s reported by major news outlets, making Twitter a source of real-time data that’s unrivaled by any other source. Back in 2009, Google recognized this and integrated real-time tweets into their search results to give users the most up-to-date information available. However, this partnership ended a short two years later (not surprisingly, as they were betting on Google Plus to come through).

Fast forward to 2015, and Google has come to the realization that it needs real-time data back (in case you hadn’t heard, G+ didn’t really live up to expectations). They understand that if they want to be the go-to search engine, they need to be the single place that users can search for anything, from any source.
