    [Social Media] Forget Indexing Tweets: Google Is Pulling Them Directly from the API
    When Google rolled out with Caffeine last year, the idea was to speed up the way that the search engine was able to index pages, particularly for use in real-time social media searches. It’s a cool feature, but it’s just an addition to what they’ve already been saying for a couple of years (and proclaiming more openly in December) about how social signals are playing a roll in their algorithm. Apparently, that wasn’t fast enough, so they’re going straight to the source. We just ran a test of our own (above). No indexing could work that quickly.
