Thursday, July 2, 2009

Today, Microsoft has added a feature to Bing that allows the search engine to query the Internet for so-called real-time data, including postings from Twitter users. Microsoft is currently looking to make a bigger splash in the search market. Through the first nine months of 2008 the company committed more than $1.5 billion to acquiring search, or search-driven businesses including a $1.3 billion buyout of enterprise specialists Fast Search & Transfer.

Starting with some of the more prominent and prolific Twitterers from a variety of spheres. There has been much discussion of real-time search and the premium on immediacy of data that has been created primarily by Twitter. Among the Twitterers that Bing will index at the outset are Wall Street Journal tech columnist Kara Swisher and a number of Microsoft staffers. Bing will index a few thousand Twitter users in the project's early days. The index includes Tweets from Al Gore, American Idol's Ryan Seacrest, and a number of other high-profile figures from the arts, politics, and technology

Now Bing not just as a search site, but as a so-called decision engine.
