Google has apparently joined hands with Twitter to include tweets as its search results. This new move would not only help the micro-blogging site to draw people’s attention and boost its usage, but also ensure that the search engine giant gets more real-time results in its search queries.
The announcement was made by the micro-blogging site almost two months ago when Facebook was testing an internal search engine. However, the service which was previously available on mobile is now available on desktop as well. “It’s a great way to get real-time info when something is happening,” said Google’s Ardan Arac when the deal was confirmed in May.
The two firms had a similar agreement in 2009. However, the tweets suddenly disappeared from the Google page which gave rise to rumours that the firms might not be in good terms with each other. But ending all the speculations, the two have entered the arrangement again. Confirmation this time came as an exchange of tweets between them.
“Hey @twitter, Search party at our place. Meet us on desktop?” Google asked, to which Twitter replied, “You got it, @google. We’ll bring the Tweets.”
