Twitter And Bing Renew Search Deal

By: Chris Crum - November 1, 2013

Bing announced today that it has renewed its search deal with Twitter, which provides tweets in search results for a “near real-time” experience.

Bing had this to say in a blog post:

At Bing, we believe that for every search there is somebody out there who can help. That’s why we have been teaming up with Twitter for a few years to surface public tweets from people who may have something to contribute to what you’re trying to get done with Bing.

Whether it’s a politician, celebrity, thought leader or friend, our renewed partnership with Twitter ensures that you have near real-time access to what people are tweeting tailored to what you’re searching for.

As you may know, Google used to have a similar deal with Twitter, but that fell apart a few years ago, around the time when Google was getting Google+ off the ground. Google search has suffered as a result.

    Great article Chris firstly, but I would like to raise a question of a bigger picture.
    It seems that lots of companies separate to Google are joining forces, which I think is a good thing to happen, but does this mean that Google is so powerful, that for others to compete they have to join forces, or is it that by joining forces they can start to chip away at Googles dominance?
    I personally think Google is getting too big, and eventually it will either become unstuck, or will win total world dominance.
    Look what happened to Microsoft, IBM to name a few that were at the top of the game across numerous markets, but for various reasons they have lost out in today’s terms, When we look at what gains others have made. Is Google one of these that in the future will start to drop of, or become the new world order?
