According to StackExchange API not realtime?, the API does not return results in realtime, but has 1 minute delay for the same query.

Is there a system or an app that delivers new questions in realtime for a given tag? Perhaps by email?

There is an /events route that:

"Returns a stream of events that have occurred on the site."

Greg Hewgill has created a firehose JSON streaming event service which closely mimics the Twitter Streaming API.

He has also created a page to demo the service here: StackHose: live real-time event stream in your browser

That's helpful, but /events delays the info by 15 minutes. firehose and StackHose are built are /events. Are there any realtime solutions? – B Seven Nov 7 '12 at 14:49
@BSeven: It delays the info by 15 minutes? Where are you reading that? – Nathan Osman Nov 7 '12 at 17:03
It doesn't delay the info. I misread it. "Events are only accessible for 15 minutes after they occurred". – B Seven Nov 7 '12 at 17:15
