Bing signs deal w/ Twitter, No One Cares.
Wait sorry, they also signed a deal w/ Facebook. Still nothing? Me neither.
On October 21, Microsoft announced that it had formed a non-exclusive partnership with both Twitter and Facebook, to include live status updates of searched topics into its results. Microsoft will be using a certain algorithm to determine how to show tweets by relevancy. My guess is whichever includes: "OMG Windows 7 is MZING LOLZ RT!".
I don't know about you, but when I search for the nutritional value of a small ice-coffee from Wawa, the last thing I want to see is some doofus posting a picture of himself pouring an iced coffee AT Wawa. Or, some tween remarking: "LMAO I need a coffee, SOOO TIREDZ". Get out of my Bing results, jerks.
Though, truth be told, when I saw a bunch of people talking about a balloon in my Twitter (which is awesome, BTW), I instantly went through the trending topics to see what everyone was blabbling about. And it only took me seconds to be instantly made aware of what was happening. I'm certainly not going to close my Twitter app, and fire up Bing Mobile to see why there is a boy flying across the US in a flying saucer. That's precisely what the hordes of intelligent people I follow are for.
That and telling me what they're eating for breakfast that day. Lord knows I can't LIVE without knowing that.
(It was eggs.)
