Yahoo! Connecting Twitter To Many Of Their Web Properties

Posted Feb 24, 2010

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) announced earlier tonight that they will be adding Twitter to many of their web properties.  The search engine giant has already embraced Facebook Connect and soon Twitter users will be able to login with their credentials.  The project is internally called “Project Rushmore.” Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Finance, Yahoo! Entertainment, and Yahoo! Sports will have real-time public Twitter updates aggregated within search results very soon.  This deal is very similar to the one that Twitter is engaged with Google and Microsoft on. [AllThingsD]
