Seriously, who actually uses google to find fb and twitter posts when those sites have their own search?

Please go to twitter.com and facebook.com, and, not having registered and logged in or visited another account, tell me how to search for posts or pages.
If I'm looking to quickly find out what Joe Celebrity or Company A is up to, I'm not going to register and log in when I can just type their name into my browser's search bar.

That said, if Twitter and Facebook refuse to make their public data available to Google for free, why do they expect Google to link to them beyond indexing links to their accounts found elsewhere on the web?
Also, I'd like to see a fake account (on a site for which the person is not registered) be picked up by this bookmarklet and advertised like a legitimate link just because it's on page 10.
