On Twitter, some tweets are serious leaks. Take the case of Live Search.

Rumours about Microsoft’s rebranding of Live Search, the search engine it hopes will one day rival Google, have swirled in technology circles for months.

Last weekend those rumours seemed confirmed, when LiveSide.net published a screenshot from Twitter that appeared to be from an overenthusiastic Microsoft insider: “Played today with Live search upcoming (to be rebranded) launch pre-beta. I like the new features and UX so far.” (Today the rumours were confirmed by the company.)
