So, Twitter, Microsoft, and Google, walk into a bar together. Then Google says, “Hey, Twitter, how about you let me use your data for my search engines?” And Microsoft says, “Yeah, great idea. How about it?” Twitter smiles and says, “Yes. Let’s do it.”
All joking aside, according to the Increase Visibility blog, Twitter did make an agreement allowing Google and Microsoft to access the Twitter database. What does this mean for you? Good news if you use Twitter and your tweets are public because your tweets can now start showing up on search engine results when people search for a related topic.
This could give you a nice SEO boost. However, if you have your Twitter settings on private all that information will remain private – good if you want it that way, not so good if you could use the SEO help.
