Twitter Unhappy About Google’s Social Search Changes

BBC News: Yesterday, Google began integrating content from its Google+ social network into its Web search results, but not everyone is happy about the update. Twitter lawyer Alex Macgillivray tweeted that it was a “bad day for the internet.” In an official statement, Twitter explained, “As we’ve seen time and time again, news breaks first on Twitter; as a result, Twitter accounts and tweets are often the most relevant results. We’re concerned that as a result of Google’s changes, finding this information will be much harder for everyone. We think that’s bad for people, publishers, news organisations and Twitter users.”

In response, Google said, “We are a bit surprised by Twitter’s comments about Search plus Your World, because they chose not to renew their agreement with us last summer and since then we have observed their rel=nofollow instructions.”
