Yahoo, Twitter Agree On Content Sharing Deal

SMS Text

Twitter seems to be getting on every search engines lately. It has already struck deals with both Microsoft and Google whereby Twitter streams will be integrated into search result pages. And now, it just agreed on a content sharing deal with Yahoo.

According to Jim Stoneham, VP of communities for Yahoo via a report by LATimes, the deal will allow users to take material from both sites without having to leave either one. This means that Twitter feeds will be accessible on Yahoo’s various content sites. Users will also be able to update their Twitter status and share content from Yahoo in their Twitter feed. Of course, on the search side, public Twitter updates will be displayed as part of Yahoo search results.

Both Yahoo and Twitter are yet to announced the deal formally. So until then, enjoy the Yahoo tweet-less search results while the deal has not yet materialized.
