Google-Twitter Mobile Deal Extends To Desktop

Google / Tech

Back in May Google-Twitter struck up a deal where Tweets relevant to search would show up on Google mobile search results. The program was supposed to eventually stretch over to the desktop version of Google and it appears that it finally has. In a Twitter exchange between @google and @twitter the invitation was sent and cordially accepted.

So Twitter results relevant to your Google searches should start appearing soon on your Google search page. When Google and Twitter struck up this deal back in May it led to more speculation of Google buying the social media giant to bolster a Google social media channel. While Google+ has done well in its own way and continues to have millions of daily users, it hasn’t done as well as expected to take on Facebook and Twitter. There is still a whisper in the air about Google potentially buying Twitter, considering it is a ripe space for advertising. But there’s also some vocal people who think Google’s interest in Twitter is laughable and that Larry Page could give two nuts about Twitter or its user base. For now it looks like the deal is pushing Tweets on the Google search results timeline
