Bing announced on Friday that it is rolling out a feature that lets you search for specific Twitter profiles or hashtags. If you just do a hashtag search, it will give you results for recent tweets for it like so:

If you start your search with an “@,” it will recognize that you’re looking for a Twitter handle:

It will also show tweets from other people related to that person’s Twitter handle.

Bing is also including celebrity gossip from Twitter in regular celebrity searches. If you search for Ashton Kutcher, for example, it may include tweets from accounts like Us Weekly and and E! News.

Bing and Twitter renewed their search deal in November, which continues to give Bing Twitter access unavailable to Google.
