The world of social media and the world of search engines are about to collide, as a report detailed by business site Bloomberg suggests a deal between Twitter and Google has been made to show Tweets on the major search engine site.
Searching for Tweets
The new deal means 140 character tweets will be made visible on Google’s search engine when a user searches for the relevant keywords. Tweets will be shown on the search engine as soon as they’re posted, helping bridge social and search engines in a way that will benefit company’s utilising social media. Access to Twitter’s stream of data has been granted to Google, allowing for instant results, rather than having to crawl for the information.
The update is expected to arrive within the first half of the year, though no official confirmation from either Google or Twitter has been granted. It’s a fairly strong rumour though, as Google and Twitter had a similar system in place between 2009 and 2011. With Google opening up more to competing social networking sites integrating with their results, we’re one step closer to a united internet, making the world a better place for users and companies alike.
Companies with high rankings on the search engine will need to up their social media game if they want to continue maintaining such a strong presence, and an SEO company with Social Media knowledge can help bring out the best results in both aspects of internet marketing.
