As part of its ongoing commitment to be the center of people's online lives, Yahoo Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) today announced a global partnership with Twitter to integrate Twitter's real-time social experiences with more than 600 million people in Yahoo!'s global network. The integration is part of Yahoo!'s commitment to provide personally relevant information to people, from sources across the Web.
This partnership includes three primary elements:
1) People will be able to access their personal Twitter feeds across Yahoo!'s many products and properties, including the homepage, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Sports, and others, letting them check in more easily on what's happening with the people and things they care about while on Yahoo!.
2) People will be able to update their Twitter status and share content from Yahoo! in their Twitter stream, so they can easily share their Yahoo! experiences with their friends and followers on Twitter.
3) Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! media properties like News, Finance, Entertainment, and Sports will include real-time public Twitter updates across a variety of topics. Yahoo! Search users will immediately see real-time Twitter results today; go to Yahoo! and try it out.
I can see some good stuff coming from twitter like emergency stuff, news of world events and so forth
today announced a global partnership with Twitter
Surely the great advantage with Twitter (as with RSS) is that there is effectively zero spam?
for the life of me I can't figure out WHY I would want to search on twitter for something, as a user?
