It seems there has been an ever increasing trend lately to integrate as many services into other services as possible. The latest in this trend is Yahoo’s move to incorporate Twitter into its news stream. This is not a very surprising move, considering how important Twitter has become to news sources. Consistently proving to be the go-to source for the latest breaking news, Twitter has become a considerable asset in this field. Here is a quote from Yahoo’s CEO:
“Updates direct from politicians, celebrities, media outlets, and other publishers have become an important source of real-time news and information. 140 characters can connect athletes with their fans, capture live chatter from the red carpet, and inspire global debate… so we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Twitter to bring Tweets directly into the Yahoo newsfeed.”
As you can see below, tweets from sources like ABC News will start to appear in the news feed.
This new feature will continue to roll out to all U.S. users over the next couple of days. We think this trend towards integration is great and will only continue to make everyone’s lives easier and more convenient.
