Microsoft renews Twitter Fire Hose Search deal


6, 2011


Microsoft has succeeded where Google failed, by renewing their data sharing deal with Twitter, something which Google recently failed with, terminating their Realtime search feature in the process.

The renewal was revealed in a cutesy conversation on twitter between the official Bing and Twitter accounts, as recorded by The Next Web.

With Google now in direct competition with both Facebook and Twitter with Google Plus, it is likely Microsoft will have much greater access to social networking data from these other companies to improve the attractiveness and accuracy of their own search engine, already pretty accurate but with a low user base.
