Twitter To Be Added To Google News

Google news is a reliable source of information which gather all the different online information websites news, and rank them in order to have a clear news feed. I use it often, as it allows me to view quickly the most interesting headlines, and while I pick one, I have several valuable articles added to it.

The CEO of Google announced it will add a Twitter feature to Google News.

The feature adds a small box to the right-hand side of the page that allows users to login with their Twitter credentials and then “see when people you follow are talking about the news.” Search Engine Land even found a help page about the experiment. The description of the feature says that it will allow users to “find news articles that your friends are sharing on Twitter,” but notes that the new Friends section will only show articles that can be found in Google News.

It adds to Google News a social layer which is very interesting. Also, it is very interesting to see that Twitter is becoming a reliable source of information, as blogs became couple of years ago.
