Twitter is now officially speaking out against Google’s new search features that give prominent placement to content from its own social network, Google+.
In a statement, Twitter complained that “people, publishers, news organizations and Twitter users” would suffer from not being able to quickly see tweets in search results.
“As we’ve seen time and time again, news breaks first on Twitter; as a result, Twitter accounts and Tweets are often the most relevant results,” the company said.
Twitter General Counsel Alex Macgillivray, among other thought leaders who criticized Google’s Google-centric approach, had already personally called today’s launch a “bad day for the Internet.”
First they came for the affiliate market and I did not speak out because I was not a affiliate market.
Then they came for the analytics market and I did not speak out because I was not in the analytics market.
Then they came for the local market and I did not speak out because I was not in the local market.
Then they came for my personal network and there was no one left to speak out for me.
This is a huge mistake, and it's annoying/ugly. No one is liking this new SERP. No one.
