Close on the heels of Bing signing a deal with Twitter and Facebook, to include results from two of the most powerful social networking sites, Google has also made a official announcement about a new tie-up with twitter to include tweets into Google search results.
According to Google:
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.
Looks like, Twitter has finally cracked a revenue model, and though the amount of money involved in the two deals are not yet confirmed, we expect it to be in millions.
To sum it up, two of the top search engines will now display real-time results, which is massive for users who want fresh information everytime they search for something.
