Google & Bing In Twitter Search Battle

Bing logoMicrosoft announced having agreed a deal with Twitter on providing real-time searches in Bing from Twitter. A few hours later, Google announced pretty much the same deal.

Using Bing or Google, users should be able to search in Twitter messages, even just a few moments after they have been “tweeted”.

Microsoft already has a test version ready, bingtweets, Google will be ready in “a few months”.

It’s unknown how much Twitter will be paid from Bing and Google for this deal, but it’s likely they have received quite an amount.

Another win for Microsoft is in place after Bing also came to an agreement with Facebook on indexing content at Facebook. A deal, Google currently does not have.

  2. Having social media indexed in search engine sounds good, as real time results can spread a lot faster than the actual news itself on official site. The bad thing is that the accuracy issue and overloaded information which may not be entirely useful. We just need to bear with that. ^^

    • You’re right, the overload information is something we (or the providers) will need to deal with. I think that’s what Facebook is trying to do with their new “news feed / live news” features, where news feed is (or could) be older items that are popular in your network, rather than live news which can quickly become “information overload”.
