Twitter in talks with Microsoft, Google

Twitter is in separate, advanced talks with Microsoft and Google to bring the social network’s massive heap of real-time data to the companies’ search engines, All Things Digital reports.

Sources close to the discussions told All Things Digital’s Kara Swisher that the deals would include licensing Twitter’s full feed and integrating it into Bing’s and Google’s search results. The deals could involve millions of dollars in payment, revenue sharing, or a combination of both.

Sources said a number of scenarios are being discussed to compensate Twitter for its huge and potentially valuable trove of real-time and content-sharing information, generated from the data stream of billions of tweets from its 54 million monthly users. …

The deals, stressed sources close to the situation, are nonexclusive, especially because Twitter’s management is keen to remain independent and also nonpartisan in the growing search battle between Google and Microsoft.
