Twitter: tweet today, gone tomorrow?

californiastemcellreport noted on 13 Oct 09:

When we Googled the terms “klein research america,” a reference to the award from “Research America” came up in the No. 5 position. But it linked to an item from Twitter (known as a Tweet) – not the announcements from Research America or CIRM. Neither showed up on the first four pages of the Google search results.

IPBiz googled the same thing on 17 Oct 07 and got the following:

Hit #1: Robert Klein receives Research!America Advocacy Award | California ...
Robert Klein receives Research!America Gordon and Llura Gund Leadership Award for his advocacy of stem cell and diabetes research. -

which was a DIRECT link to the CIRM webpage:

Hit #3 was to Research America:

with the second link [ ] providing the information:

Hit #4 was a false hit: Research!America

**So as of Oct. 17 announcements from CIRM and ResearchAmerica are hits #1 and #3 in Jensen's search and there are no tweets.
