Google recently made an official announcement that it would include Twitter updates in its search results.Â Following is an excerpt from a blog post on the official Google blog written by Marissa Mayer, Google Vice President of Search Products and User Experience.
Given this new type of information and its value to search, we are very excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to include their updates in our search results. We believe that our search results and user experience will greatly benefit from the inclusion of this up-to-the-minute data, and we look forward to having a product that showcases how tweets can make search better in the coming months. That way, the next time you search for something that can be aided by a real-time observation, say, snow conditions at your favorite ski resort, you’ll find tweets from other users who are there and sharing the latest and greatest information.
While Bing’s Twitter search is live today, it seems like Google might take some time to integrate Twitter’s data into its search results. It’s high time for Twitter now. Having partnered with two giant companies on the web it seems to have a huge role to play.
