NEWS: Bing strikes Twitter-deal

We knew already that bith Bing and Google were in talks with Twitter about a deal which would allow them to index the Twitter database. At the Web 2.0 Summit today in San Francisco Bing announced it has struck that deal with Twitter.

Bing now has access to the entire public Twitter feed and has a beta Twitter search engine. Unfortunately this search engine is only available in the US for now. According to Searchengineland the service will feature a tag cloud to highlight popular search topics and it will be using bit.ly urls.

Bing has also released some screenshots of how the searchengine will look:

Bing_Twitter_1
Bing_Twitter_2

If more information on the Twitter - Bing searchengine comes available we will report on it.

  • It's a non_exclusive deal. Google has a similar partnership with "we all love Twitter". Big question is: Why Biz, or didn't you had no choice and both Giants were already indexing your Tweets?

  • Hi Henk, or right here, we also wrote about that ;)

    What's interesting is that Twitter now probably won't be aiming for being a search engine themselves, something which was thought of a couple of months ago. I think thats a smart choice. But still they haven't found their business model...
