Yahoo and Twitter Partnership

Just last night Twitter and Yahoo confirmed their partnership. Yahoo, a search engine that is slowly dying (in my opinion). Google is taking over. The deal between Twitter and Yahoo is to be more exclusive than the one between Bing and Google.

Yahoo says it will try to cover three main target areas.

  • Access to your Twitter feed on Yahoo – You will be able to access your friend’s tweets from any page Yahoo.
  • Ability to update status from Yahoo – Update your status just like in a Twitter client.
  • Yahoo Search and media integration- Integration in their search pages.

Bing and Google have had real time Twitter updates included in their updates for months now. This will be the first integration from Yahoo. More integrations coming this year.
