Google real time search gets timeline

Google have added a new (as far as I’m aware) timeline to their realtime search results showing trending topics from twitter and errr twitter.  You can now see exactly when topics started trending, peaking and declining via the handy bar just under the search box.

A recent search for ‘England’ just before their crucial third world cup game showed searches trending from 8am until declining shortly after 1pm presumably coinciding with a mass exodus of people leaving their offices behind to watch the match down the pub.

Try it yourself england – Google Search.
