Dear Google, please fix the updatesphere

Updatesphere - Google Search

Google’s indexing of the updatesphere is going quite well with the recent news that it will soon show all tweets going back to March 21, 2006. However, there seems to be a very basic flaw in its search design: it returns the platform name for a query! So if I search for Google it will include Google Buzz and if I search for Twitter it will return everything posted from Twitter.

I can imagine a finegrained search similar to “Google” site:http://awebsitehere.com that would allow you so specify within which platform you would like to search. A search query would then look like this: “Google” platform:Twitter or “iranrevolution” platform:FriendFeed.

Just a thought.
