Twitter Renews Social Search Deal With Bing

Written on September 07, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Twitter has extended its contract with Bing, allowing the social site to continue hosting its real-time "firehose" in search results.

Last Summer, Google has ended its partnership with Twitter and decided to roll out its own G+ network. This matter did not seem to bother the social site, since they also had another real-time deal with Bing for the same services.

In a recently publicized Twitter chat, the two networks announced their plans of extending their real-time search partnership. Both accounts recalled the past two years that they have been working together as partners to include all Twitter’s tweets into Bing’s search engine, and have agreed to “stick together and do bigger and better things.”

After the jump, you can see the summarized version of the companies’ comic Twitter chat, as disclosed by Twitter spokesperson Carolyn Penner — the person who noted in an email that the “partnership has been extended.”

Twitter Rolls Out Image Galleries, Improves User Profiles

Written on August 23, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Today, Twitter continues to enhance user profiles by adding a new photo gallery tool.

Over the last several months, Twitter has rolled out some great improvements into their service, allowing users to experience an enhanced search functionality and photo uploading. Now, the site had once again added a new tool that will surely keep you interested. Starting Monday, your photos can be displayed on your Twitter profile in an image gallery. You can either publish images through the site’s photo-uploading tool, or you can use third-party apps such as yFrog, TwitPic or Instagram.

The so-called user galleries are capable of featuring over 100 images (beginning January 2010) that you have recently posted via Twitter and other photo-sharing services. The galleries will be displayed automatically on your profile, and visitors could click the “view all” button to see more images. The photos can either be shown through a grid view, thumbnails, or in a detail view — headlining the image’s caption or the tweet that was posted along with it.

Although this enhancement is expected to change the layout of Twitter profiles, the galleries would still be a good way to show people that Twitter is not only a website for 140 characters. Instead, it’s also the best place for sharing photos. The galleries will be an image-only tool, and it will be available to users starting Monday. “We’re rolling out one of my fave features today: user galleries! View photos an account has shared on Twitter. Sit tight – it’s coming soon,” Twitter Communications Manager – Carolyn Penner – posted in a tweet.
