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.
