Google isn't the only entity taking an interest in Twitter's tweets. That most venerable of government institutions, the Library of Congress, announced Wednesday it will archive every single "what's happening?" update broadcast on the short message service since it opened for business in 2006. Granted, Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey's first-ever tweet -- "just setting up my twttr" -- probably isn't going to rank up there with "what hath God wrought?" But it's Exhibit T in the case for Twitter having evolved from beyond the Web 2.0 fad-of-the-month club into a serious business.
I agree that Google and Twitter are both valuable in their own way. For 90% of my searches I now use TipTop http://FeelTipTop.com which searches tweets and for others I go to Google or another search engine. More and more users will learn to do something along these lines.
