Renewed deal lets Bing users search for Twitter posts

Microsoft has made a big deal of weaving social networking into Bing's search results, and it has just proven that commitment by renewing an agreement with Twitter. The extended pact lets Bing explorers see public tweets alongside the usual web links, making it easy to track down posts from celebrities and friends. It's not clear how long the new deal will last, although Microsoft told TechCrunch that the past four years of working with Twitter have been "great" -- Redmond is clearly in it for the long haul.
