Bing and Google to Include Twitter Updates in Search Results

Another day, another huge Twitter announcement. And this time, it involves two of the biggest Internet companies around. Both Microsoft and Google announced today that both companies would start including Twitter posts in search results.

The feature is already live on Microsoft's Bing; Twitter posts appear based on key terms and tweets about hot topics. Click the "see more" link and you're redirected to a page containing recent tweets (that refresh automatically!) and a list of top links about the topic currently being shared on Twitter.

I think this news is exciting. While your reactions are split over getting news via Twitter, it's become a prime destination for finding up-to-the-minute content. We'll have to wait and see how Bing and Google plan to fully integrate Twitter feeds into search results pages, but if the past is any indicator, the incorporation of Twitter will be a huge win.

If I want my news via Twitter, I will just go to my Twitter feed (or search.twitter.com). I have played with Bing's service and it hasn't been anything to brag about.

i used it yesterday and it seems really cool. I'm not sure why they are doing this though.

i find it odd that no other micro-blogging sites have emerged to compete with twitter...I wonder why?

I feel a little iffy about this. I hope they do it in a way that doesn't get in the way of getting the actual stories. I'm not on twitter and I don't really care what random people are saying about anything I'm searching. And if I did, i'd be on twitter. google and microsoft, please proceed with caution.
