Both the semantic and temporal distance between people and what they say is shorter on Twitter than on web pages indexed by Google. But it may be incorrect to refer to Twitter search as "real time"; "real real time search" would be the ability to identify people based on what they are doing (not just saying) right now. (Assuming they want to be identified, of course.)

Dennis - Do you mean an automated activity monitor rather than allowing people to say what they are doing? Some of the enterprise 2.0 tools do have automated activity monitoring status fields. Thanks for your comment. Bill
