Available for reading on the Cornell University Library, a study performed by two physics professors at the Michigan Technical University, thinks that the best way to locate time travellers is through Twitter. The results were, of course, negative, probably because time travellers aware of this paper went back in time and properly covered their tracks.
Released late last month, Searching the Internet for evidence of time travelers attempts to find real-world Marty McFlys by searching for information online that couldn?t have been posted without foreknowledge of the future.
"Were a time traveler from the future to access the Internet of the past few years, they might have left once-prescient content that persists today, the authors speculate. Alternatively, such information might have been placed on Internet by a third party discussing something unusual they have heard. Such content might have been catalogued by search engines such as Google...or Bing...or remain in posts left on Facebook...Google Plus...or Twitter.
