The Associated Press reports that Google has bolstered its search engine so that the data yielded will also include output from Twitter and blogs, as well as news stories.

Google's "real-time" search results will appear in a capsule on the main results page that will capture tweets, blog posts and news stories almost instantaneously after the information reaches the Web index. Of course, "fast" isn't the same as "vital," but Bing & Yahoo, like Google, are competing with Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, which emphasize exchanging real-time information.
