Microsoft renews its real-time search vows with Twitter [zdnet.com]

Microsoft and Twitter seem to have renewed their deal via which Twitter results will show up as part of the real-time search results in Bing (at least if you go by a series of flirty tweets between the @bing and @Twitter accounts on Twitter).

There’s no press release and no blog post announcing the renewal. In fact, all a Microsoft spokesperson would say when asked is:

“We are pleased to announce that we are extending our collaboration with Twitter. We are not sharing terms of the agreement.”

Microsoft officials are not commenting on what the pair are collaborating on — if anything — beyond Twitter’s provision of real-time search results.

I am looking forward for better service with Microsoft and Twitter after the renewal. I am not into Bing. I like Google better.
