Twitter Adds Search Capability

Social networking site Twitter just added a feature that gives users the ability to globally search Tweets. The search database extends back to 2006 when the site went live. This means someone can search for a Tweet you posted several years ago and find it quickly. Needless to say, this has raised a series of privacy concerns. Tweets are not “gone forever” as users were led to believe. As always, be careful what you post online!
