    This is from CNET, Feb 17th, 2011:

    Over the course of the day Google will start rolling out new social search features that more prominently display content that connections on social networks like Twitter have shared. Google's been doing that for a while, but in the slums of the search results page: all the way at the bottom.

    Now those results will appear interspersed with regular search results when you're signed into Google and someone on a social network that you have connected to your Google profile shares a link, with a note under the result telling you who shared the link and where. Twitter seems to be the big winner here, but any account linked to one's Google profile can be featured in results.

    On a personal note I did notice that more of my tweets were popping up in Google alerts so I wonder if this indicative of a new trend.

    Thanks, what is interesting is that the tweets are the same old tweets being posted but for some reason Google appears to be more interested. Could be a response by Big G to the Facebook challenge.
