Swollen Tongue Sore Throat And Gums Mean?

earthquake in Shanghai

Today, on 12 January 2011 at 09:19 (Beijing time), there were about 230 km from Shanghai, an earthquake of magnitude 5.0 in the Yellow Sea. The earthquake we have felt in Shanghai, Jiading District. The office building of Volkswagen China Research Lab on the campus of Tongji University has for about 20 seconds wobbled slightly.

The search with google.de in Chinese with 上海 地震 (dizhen Shanghai - Shanghai earthquakes) that gave a hit like in the news and on the normal results on Google were also the real time search results from google, mainly out of twitter.

real-time Twitter search results on Google (in China)

This is interesting because I've never seen that real-time search results are on the normal hit list nor that they are updated online, as in a ticker. Even more interesting is how much was twittering seconds after the quake, also in Chinese. First, this is actually working, on the other, is Twitter in China actually blocked by the great Chinese firewall ... but there are probably more ways - somehow I come to my blog. Another interesting Punkt ist, dass so Twitter Feeds, auch wenn geblockt, ohne VPN oder proxy in China gelesen werden können. Das Bedarf aber noch einer "genaueren" Prüfung ;-) Facebook und andere Microblog und Nachrichtendienste sollen ebenfalls in Googles Echtzeitsuche fallen. Probiert es selber: http://www.google.de/realtime

Jetzt habe ich noch zwei Karten mit der Position des Erdbebens eingefügt. Die Karten sind von einer chinesischen Nachrichtenseite .
