Breaking: Yahoo partners with Twitter!


This is Yahoo!’s latest move into social media landscape. You’ll see real-time public Twitter updates on Yahoo! News, Finance, Entertainment as well as Search. Cool.

Not to be left out of the Twitter partnership spree, Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) is set to announce a deal with Twitter this evening to integrate the microblogging service across its properties worldwide. Yahoo users will now be able to access their personal Twitter feeds and update their Twitter status on Yahoo sites, including the home page (which already allowed users to edit their status on social networks including MySpace and Facebook). In addition, Yahoo says that all of its properties—including News, Finance, Entertainment and Sports—will soon feature “real-time public Twitter updates.” And like Microsoft’s Bing and Google, Yahoo will also add real-time Twitter results to its search engine.
