Tweets Showcased in Google Mobile Searches

Twitter has made a very powerful friend on the mobile web: Google. The companies announced recently that relevant tweets will show up in Google searches performed on the mobile web and the Google iOS and Android apps.

taylorswift2Jana Messerschmidt, Twitter’s vice president of global business development & platform, blogged about the new feature:

We’re excited to team up with Google to bring Twitter’s unique, real-time content to Google’s search results. Starting today, U.S. users searching in English will see relevant Tweets in their search results within the Google app (iOS and Android) and mobile web. The desktop web version is coming shortly, and we have plans to bring this feature to more countries in the coming months.

By deeply integrating Twitter’s real-time content into Google search, we hope you find it easier than ever to explore your interests across both Twitter and Google.

Google senior product manager Ardan Arac also announced the news on Google’s blog:

It’s a great way to get real-time info when something is happening. And it’s another way for organizations and people on Twitter to reach a global audience at the most relevant moments.

To start, we’re launching this on Google.com in English in the Google app (on Android and iOS) and on mobile browsers, rolling out gradually. We’re working on bringing it to more languages and to desktop, so stay tuned.

Readers: Does this make Google search even more relevant?
