Tweets now appear in Google search results -Now you can see Tweets in the Google search results as Google has added Tweets to their real-time search results on the desktop. Google search results-Google’s results will now show Tweets along with standard search results on your desktop, especially when search terms have to do with keywords that are trending on Twitter at the time the search is made, Slashgear.com reported.
For example, searching for ‘NASA Twitter’ will not only show you a link to NASA’s official Twitter page, it will also show NASA’s most recent Tweets. In another example cited by Google, if you search for Malcolm X, and today is Malcolm X’s birthday, you would find popular-on-twitter results with a link to ‘more tweets for Malcolm X’.
The feature was already available for mobile browsers and on the Google app for both iOS and Android devices. –
A partnership between Google and Twitter that has placed tweets in Google search results on mobile devices since earlier this year has now been expanded to the desktop.
Relevant tweets will appear in desktop results for queries performed in English. The search doesn’t need to include the term “twitter” or twitter hashtags — if there are tweets that Google thinks are relevant, it will surface them anyway.
On Friday, for instance, a search for “President Obama” returned recent tweets from Obama’s Twitter account near the top of the page, below a few news articles.
The tweets that appear will include photos and links that may have been contained in the tweet.
Google has provided links to tweets in its search results for a long time, but showing the actual tweets could potentially give a boost to Twitter at a time when it’s struggling to add new users.
Google noted the expansion on Friday in an update to its earlier announcement around the mobile rollout.
