Twitter may give Google a run for its money. Twitter's one more way, though, that Google knows everything about you. Speak now, and Google listens.

Now Twitter has made text messages public.

If you don't believe me, change your Google search preferences:

Go to Google.com - Preferences
SafeSearch Filtering
Do not filter my search results.
Save preferences.

Then do a site search (the Google "search-within-a-search" that now appears in a box below some Web sites) and search Twitter for your choice of inappropriate language, unfortunate insults, or bad behavior. Type in "site:twitter.com (fill in the blank)."

Yahoo's striving to make search more resemble the Semantic Web. Google's indexing it. Either way, Twitter's the Romper Room of chat rooms -- preschool with money. That's the subject of this week's SearchEngine WarGames.
