One thing we need is better search for microblogging sites like Twitter, Friendfeed and their competitors.
Swedish search engine Twingly is launching just that – a new microblogging search tool – today. Use it to search a variety of sites – Twitter, Jaiku, Identi.ca, Bleeper.de, Bloggy.se and Pownce archives (since the service is now dead). They’re calling it the worlds first federated microblog search.
This is a one stop shop to do searches across multiple microblogging sites at once, not just Twitter or other individual services via their own search products.
Friendfeed integration is “on the way” says CEO Martin Källström. Users can also create keyword alerts accessed via RSS or email.
We previously covered Twingly a year ago when they previewed a Europe-focused blog search engine. The company has raised €1 million in funding.
