Bing is reported to have added tweets on the Bing News search results pages. The tweets are public updates from the Twitter stream related to the news query, revealed a tweet from Min-John (MJ) Lee, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft Bing news and real-time search.

His tweeted: "@dannysullivan bing news just launched twitter tweets in news search results. (cc @sengineland)."

For e.g., search for [japan] on Bing News and you will see a box on the right that says "Public updates for japan." You can pause the stream of tweets, if you want to slow down the stream. You can also click through to read the tweet by the Twitter user directly on Twitter.com.

Finally, you can click on the "more updates" link to be taken to Bing's Social Search results for that query.

The Bing News search results page does look a bit cluttered and can maybe benefit from a slight redesign.
