  • 3 months after the companies reached a deal to include tweets within Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) search results, Google is adding Twitter's (TWTR +0.3%) content to its U.S. English mobile results, both via the company's mobile site and its widely-used Android/iOS search apps. PC integration and support for other countries will arrive later.
  • Notably, tweets appear at the top of the sample mobile search result pages shown by Google, and images attached to a tweet are shown. Google emphasizes the value of Twitter content as a real-time information source for its results - indeed, one of the sample tweets has a timestamp indicating it was published just 12 seconds before coming up in a Google search.
  • Twitter has turned positive following Google's announcement, after spending most of the day down slightly. The news comes as Twitter revamps the search experience on its own site to provide quick access to "top" tweets and filtering options for photos, videos, accounts, and news.
  • Last month, following its Q1 sales miss, Twitter announced a partnership with Google's DoubleClick display ad unit.
