After Conducting my own 21-day experiment, my results say:

Twitter search is better for: Current events, popular culture, and direct access to people for the purpose of continuing conversations.

Google is better for: current research findings (formal) in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (with the possible exception of computer technology), how-to documents, and historical documents which I purposely left unexplored.

You do have to sign into twitter to have your actions recorded in your account. It is confusing. Since I use two accounts, I sometimes make mistakes. Twitter interface is not intuitive. Bill
