    Ah, so that’s why Twitter pulled out of Google. Looking at the two presentations, I’ll have to say the Hashtag page is a big improvement in design and usability over ye olde Google Realtime Search. Some questions come to mind. One, how safeguards does Twitter have in place to prevent these pages from being hijacked (a la the McDonalds story fiasco)? Two (in a related vein), how much filtering do these pages have in place? A quick perusal of the #NASCAR page shows mostly drivers and sponsors, while a Twitter search of the hashtag shows many more posts. It would be interesting to see some comparisons with other pages to explore this new feature more.
