Bing Adds Twitter Tweets To Search Results, Gets More Real-Time Search
By on July 1st, 2009

Microsoft has been getting a lot of things right with their decision engine , the latest being the introduction of showing tweets in search results.

This would introduce real-time search into Bing, Google has been after twitter for quite sometime now to integrate real-time search, however surprising Bing has beaten them to it.

Starting later today, when you search for these folks names in association with Twitter, you’ll see their latest Tweets come up in real time on Bing’s search results. For example, if you type Kara Swisher Twitteror Kara Swisher Tweetsor even @karaswisheras your search query, you’ll see something like the below.

However there is a small problem here, you cannot call this a real time-search yet, since you are specifically searching for a name with a keyword that is related to twitter, users can also perform the same searches using Twitter search.

It would be interesting to see how Bing takes this integration and adds it to other search terms which are not related to twitter but to maybe say a ongoing topic, for which you will definitely find lots of conversations on twitter.

This should definitely send a alarm to the folks back at Google, who have been trying hard to get a deal with twitter and roll out real-time results as a part of search queries.

However Google is definitely not going to sit tightly on this, so expect some announcements from the in the near future.

The new feature will be gradually rolled out to users in next few hours, so if you don’t see twitter results when you search Bing, give it another try after sometime.

Do you use Bing? Or do you still prefer to use Google? Let us know about it.
