Bing, Twitter Renew Deal To Include Tweets In Search Results

bing-twitter-logosBing has announced a renewal of its long-standing deal with Twitter to include tweets in Bing’s search results.

The Bing-Twitter partnership began in 2009 and was renewed in 2011.

Tweets are primarily available and searchable at Bing’s social search page,, but they’re also showing up in Bing’s main search results.

A search for “lax shooting” shows recent tweets on the right side of Bing’s results (though I’m amazed that Vanity Fair and People would get prominence over more trusted and traditional news sources):


The companies have been pretty quiet in the past on details, and that’s also the case today. There’s nothing on Twitter’s blog about the deal, and Bing’s blog post is just three sentences long.

The two companies did congratulate and thank one another on Twitter today, kinda like how they announced the 2011 renewal:


If the deal was announced in October 2009, then renewed in September 2011 and again now, it might be safe to assume the partnership has been extended for another two years. But neither Bing nor Twitter will confirm that.

    Google should have integrated twitter results, which was great in the past as we had many sales via twitter becz of integration with GOOGE! I would request Google to integrate social as its a great trend which is following!

    Just thinking aloud : Maybe Google didn’t want twitter results because sites like yours got traffic via it.
