Twitter Director of Business Development, Mr. April Underwood said “ With more than 250 million+ tweets/day, twitter is a valuable source of information about the happenings around the World in real-time ”. Twitter has been sharing its data with Microsoft’s search engine Bing and renewed the deal in Sep 2011, while Google has decided to incorporate the results of social media Google+ in the search results.
With this deal, Yandex is trying to increase the quality of its search results by adding international social media services. Yandex has recently introduced the feature “ People Finder ” to search a person’s social media profile on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, VKontakte, LiveJournal, Odnoklassniki and other social networks. It is still in a beta phase.
