The realtime search is still experimental and when your try to get there over http://www.google.com/realtime you will get a server error
You need to use http://www.google.com/realtime?esrch=RealtimeLaunch::Experiment to get to this page.
I searched for tiger woods and got some good results.
Google will in the future combine realtime and normal search but will keep realtime as well as a separate search.
If you want to know if there was just right now an earthquake you might want search only in realtime, but if you want to know how an earthquake works you would search on google standard.
Google realtime search is coming few months after www.bing.com/social got released. Microsoft and google are paying a lot of money to facebook to get their FB info.
However bing.com shows much better facebook results than google, I believe the reason is that Microsoft has some shares in FB.
Overall the Twitter search in google is better, even better than on Twitter.com but for Facebook results bing.com is the clear winner.
