Bing renews Search Deal with Twitter

on September 8, 2011 | Bing Twitter | Comments (0)

Bing and Twitter have renewed their realtime search agreement which allows Bing to index Twitter data and Tweets into their search engine.

In the past year, Twitter didn’t renew a similar agreement with Google, leaving Google to shut down their real time search engine.

This is a good win for Bing, and you can now see Microsoft has Facebook, and Twitter data being indexed, while Google has what? Not much.

It seems Twitter and Bing has a little flirt on Twitter 🙂 here is their dialogue:
