Social networking is here to stay, and so is Twitter
for that matter. In fact, you'll be seeing even more of the microblogging service as it continues to strike deals, like the one it inked with Microsoft
to have Bing
display the latest tweets on your searches.
"Have you ever searched for information on something that is happening right now, only to find out that there’s nothing matching what you’re looking for? News on an earthquake that just happened or information on a hot new product announcement may not show up until hours after the event actually occurred. One of the cool features that we have recently released will give you better relevance with real-time social results from the Twitter community," Microsoft wrote in a recent blog post.
The feature is called Social Search and it promises to deliver relevant tweets within seconds of a breaking news event. This means as product announcements or other stories of interest hit the web, you'll have access to current info from fellow tweeters as it comes in.
If you're not seeing the Twitter feed in your search results, then you're not among the "small subset" of users this is being tested on. However, Microsoft promises to make it available to everyone in the US "within a short time."
