Official Google Blog: RT @google: Tweets and updates and search, oh my!

Same-day Google response to Bing on Twitter stream searching; let’s see if Google can pull off the same trick with Facebook content indexing (which was also part of the Bing news yesterday)…

At Google, our goal is to create the most comprehensive, relevant and fast search in the world. In the past few years, an entirely new type of data has emerged — real-time updates like those on Twitter have appeared not only as a way for people to communicate their thoughts and feelings, but also as an interesting source of data about what is happening right now in regard to a particular topic.

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.
