Yahoo! and Twitter partnered to integrate real-time Twitter results in the Yahoo! News Shortcut and for other buzzing topics. “We have access to the full public feed of Twitter content. We’ve built a real-time index of this feed so you can see what people are tweeting about the topics you’re looking for. Real-time search involves striking a balance between showing the very latest content and showing slightly older content that may be more interesting or authoritative. In the coming weeks, we will be experimenting along these lines and upgrading tons of stuff to provide better, quicker, and more relevant Twitter results on Yahoo! Search result pages. The real-time Search integration is available immediately, with other features of the integration to be launched later this year,” stated Yahoo!.
