After Google Instant and YouTube Instant, can Twitter Instant be far!?

We were just getting started with the Google Instant and  soon thereafter someone tries his hands on  YouTube Instant. And now we have not just one but two different people attempting a Twitter Instant version!

The first one is From Manmohanjit Singh, a 15 year old boy from  Malaysia, who built it using jQuery and Twitter’s Search API. This one works quite well and also has a mobile version of the same. I personally tested it on my slow internet connection and it pretty much does the job.

Here are the screenshots for the first Twitter Instant. Though the site doesn’t have a fancy graphical design, it is what makes the experience a bit faster than the second one.

The second Twitter Instant is from DerMatthias. This one  has got a nice logo on the header unlike the earlier one  with simple design; but when I tried the Twitter Instant on this site, I found it to be a bit slow!  But nevertheless, it also does the function like the first instant search. You can check out the Twitter Instant (2) here.

I suppose Google Instant just started a trend! What new ‘Instant’ services can we expect to see now!?
