Twitter tweets on deals with Bing and Google

Social networking phenomenon Twitter has announced an unlikely pair of bedfellows in Microsoft and Google, announcing search related partnerships with both firms.

On Wednesday Twitter announced a collaboration with Microsoft’s Bing search engine, that will see the platform used to help it provide real time web indexing of the entire public Twitter feed.

But not to be outdone, search giant Google will also be including up to the minute Twitter updates in its own search results, which alongside Microsoft, appears to stress just how important real time information is in the battle for internet search ownership.

In related news, Microsoft also appears to have scooped Google on a deal with Facebook, incorporating real time updates from the social networking site in Bing’s search results.
