Arsenal reveals the problem with Twitter “Top Tweets”

I just noticed this a few minutes ago. I find the BBC live football feed a few minutes behind so I turned to Twitter for confirmation of the final whistle blowing at Goodison in Arsenal’s favour.

Thing is, the “Top Tweets” (at the time) talk about Fabregas’ second goal a few minutes into the second half (about 40m old at the time of this search) and the result of a game from a week ago.

This feature may be very well and good for tweets sharing links or with jokes but I sort of feel this undermines Twitter’s position of trying to be at the absolute cutting edge of news because it dilutes the real-time view.
