If you happen to be an avid Twitter user and often Google things on your mobile then you have most-likely noticed that the search giant can quite conveniently bring up Twitter results for you. The integration happened back in May and until now was only limited to mobile. Today, Google and Twitter bring the feature to your desktop as well. The announcement was made via Google's Twitter account in a typical lighthearted manner:
You got it, @google. We'll bring the Tweets. 🎉— Twitter (@twitter) August 21, 2015
The function should already be available to you on google.com with search queries in English. Results are presented in an info-card fashion and are undoubtedly convenient. Google has always been an invaluable resource for researching people, places and events and with a relevant twitter feed mixed-in with the results, you can easily see other people's opinion on the matters at hand as well.
It really seems to be a perfect marriage and this new move will undoubtedly rekindle past rumors of a Twitter acquisition by the search giant. But speculations aside, the partnership is undoubtedly mutually beneficial, making both parties even more appealing than they already are.
Tweet this. "Not interesting".
Not really a new move. Google displayed Twitter results previously in 2009 and called it Realtime. Stopped the service abruptly in 2011.
A partnership with Yandex has ended i guess. Google offered more money.
