Bing beats Google to launch twitter search

Day before I posted about Bing Vs Google, this is certainly one area where Microsoft Bing has outdone Google.

Microsoft Corp.’s Bing has beaten Google Inc. to the punch.

Google has been rumored to be casting an eye toward creating a tool for searching social networking sites, like Twitter. But today, Bing came out and did it.

When someone does a search on Bing for Al Gore in association with Twitter, for instance, the user should see Gore’s latest tweets come up among the search results.

If online chatter succeeds, Bing won’t be alone for long in offering this Twitter-search feature.

A possible Google microblogging search service that would focus on finding Twitter posts has been the subject of online chatter in recent weeks.
