New Search Deal Signed by Microsoft and Twitter

It appears that Twitter results could be coming back to Bing. Twitter had been providing real time updates to Bing for the past couple of years and like Google, the contract had ended. It appears that Twitter and Microsoft are now signing (or have signed) a new contract so the search company can carry on providing real time results.

A tweet from Bing to Twitter says the following:

@Twitter Been thinking about our last 2 yrs together. Instantly tapping into the wisdom of the Twitter community. Good times. ^bb

The exact details of the contract are not known at the moment, but it appears that things will run as normal for the next year or two between the companies.
