Google and Twitter have teamed up to provide real-time content in Google’s search results. This is from Twitter’s blog yesterday:
“Starting today, U.S. users searching in English will see relevant Tweets in their search results within the Google app (iOS and Android) and mobile web. The desktop web version is coming shortly, and we have plans to bring this feature to more countries in the coming months.”
