Bing and Google start to index public Twitter feed
We’ve already reported that Microsoft’s Bing search engine had started indexing prominent Twitter users’ tweets, but now Twitter has announced official support for indexing of tweet content by both Microsoft and Google.
Microsoft has announced that it now has access to the entire public Twitter feed and have launched a beta of Bing Twitter search (US only at present).
Meanwhile, Google and Twitter have partnered to “indue the entire world of public tweets as fast as possible”.
It will be interesting to see how quickly this rolls out and how useful it proves to be.

This is good news. Now, with the rapid indexing posts in Twitter, it will be possible to search in search engines, in real time.
my default search engine is Yahoo but now i am using BING because it is much better than Yahoo. i heard that Bing search engine would power Yahoo search also.
