Yahoo! and Twitter Sign A Partnership

Posted May 16, 2013

Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer has announced a new partnership with Twitter.  Now tweets and follow links will be added to Yahoo!’s news feed.  We will also see tweets directly from politicians, celebrities, media outlets, and other publishers on Yahoo! News as well.

“As users explore our nearly endless stream of content, we will seamlessly include relevant and personalized Tweets alongside stories from Yahoo! and our other sources. With this greater breadth of compelling content, we?re excited to give our users even more opportunities to learn and connect. Users now also have an easy way to discover relevant and interesting people and publishers to follow on Twitter, personalized to their interests and preferences,” said Mayer in a blog post.

The integration of the two services will take place in the next few days for Yahoo!’s desktop and mobile users in the U.S.  Below is a screenshot of what the integration looks like (notice the tweet from ABC World News and the ability to follow them on Twitter):
