Looks like Google is moving on Social Search integration into the SERPs. An official blog post today describes three new changes in how social results are made available through the regular SERPs when you are logged in:
First, social search results will now be mixed throughout your results based on their relevance (in the past they only appeared at the bottom)
Second, we've made Social Search more comprehensive by adding notes for links people have shared on Twitter and other sites.
Third, we've added a new option to connect accounts privately in your Google Account. (After all, you may not want everyone to know you're @spongebobsuperfan on Twitter.)
In addition, if our algorithms find a public account that might be yours (for example, because the usernames are the same), we may invite you to connect your accounts right on the search results page and in your Google Account settings.
