Google rolls out Twitter "Replay"

Search giant Google on Monday rolls out a new feature that allows users to replay Twitter tweets. Replay will let you Google search accross Twitter archives as far back as February 2010 and soon back as far as the very first Twitter tweet on March 21, 2006.

"Starting today, you can zoom to any point in time and “replay” what people were saying publicly about a topic on Twitter. To try it out, click “Show options” on the search results page, then select “Updates.” The first page will show you the familiar latest and greatest short-form updates from a comprehensive set of sources, but now there’s a new chart at the top. In that chart, you can select the year, month or day, or click any point to view the tweets from that specific time period," product manager for real-time search Dylan Casey wrote at the official Google blog.

We've blogged about this feature last April. You will find the details on this post.

Google provided a special link just in case you're interested to try. I have replaced the original "Obama" search topic with "Jovit" for tweets about Jovit Baldivino who won in the talent search show Pilipinas Got Talent last Sunday. Click here to try.

Twitter Replay
The Google search "Replay" feature for Twitter will be rolled out globally in English in the coming days.

Wait, look again on the image above, a status update for Facebook was added. Does this mean that the "Replay" feature will soon include Facebook? We'll update you on this in the coming posts.
