The race to provide real-time search results is on

Wednesday saw the search engine, Bing including updates from Twitterers in US search results. Currently only updates from a few thousand prominent users are included, but it is thought this will expand over time.

Rival search engines such as Google list social networking pro/wp-content/uploads/files in results but Bing is the first to include up to the minute results at the top of the page. This has been done using the twitter API to satisfy the demand for up to minute information.

A great step forward for Bing in providing the information users want to see, roll on the full UK launch of Bing later this year.
