I wanted to see how Tweets and Buzzes stacked up in Google's realtime search results. So I posted messages to both using uncommon terms. The first time around, I tried "Sasquatch Poopship Avocado Ultramarine." The Buzz showed up almost immediately. Nearly instantly. But it took longer for the Tweet to show up.
not sure exactly how long, because since the text was identical, it was
omitted. It took me a while to realize this. But once I did, I tried
again with "gasoline kumquat basaltic antenna."
This time, I kept checking the omitted results, and it took the better
part of a minute for the Tweet to catch up. There was also a three
second delay from the time it took me to post to Twitter, to the time I
posted to Buzz. So, even though I posted the Tweet first, the Buzz
showed up first in realtime search results.
Interestingly, however, because Andre Torrez favorited the Sasquatch Poopship tweet, it's the only thing that (currently) shows up in Google's mail search results--where it appears in Tweetorites under Mike Monteiro's friends' favorites. Which is so recursive it makes my head feel funny and floaty.
Speaking of recursive, Kevin Fox made an interesting point across
all his inputs. the social media ripple effect just got bigger. There's
so much cross-chatter now already, it's hard to know where to start.
Finally, I have no idea what all this means. But I do like the word poopship. Holla, Ween fans.
