Will Twitter Feed Microsoft, Google?

When Twitter wants to discuss data-mining deals, it goes right to the big guys. AllThingsD reported that the social-networking site is involved in separate discussions with Microsoft and Google on agreements that would result in those companies licensing full feeds from Twitter to integrate into their respective search engines.

For the information that could be mined from the data stream of billions of tweets by Twitter’s 54 million monthly users, the company would be paid several million dollars or enter into revenue-sharing proposals that would give it a piece of the revenue made from search results, according to AllThingsD.
