Bing renews Search Deal with Twitter
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:
Hey @Twitter. ^bb
@Bing What’s up?
@Twitter Been thinking about our last 2 yrs together. Instantly tapping into the wisdom of the Twitter community. Good times. ^bb
@Twitter Let’s say we stick together and do bigger and better things? ^bb
@bing We’re in. Can’t wait for what comes next.
Reading between the lines I think we can all figure our what Twitter and Bing are saying.. Ooo this is going to get interesting..
