Yahoo Enters in Content Sharing Partnership with Twitter

24 Feb 2010

Yahoo has announced a partnership with Twitter that will provide them a bigger window onto the social networking scene while pushing the exposure of the Twitter micro-blogging service.

The Twitter partnership will transform Yahoo into a highly customisable social experience that enables both Yahoo and Twitter users to enjoy integrated content without ever having to travel between the two platforms.

The deal will enable Yahoo users to access their Twitter feeds through the Yahoo homepage, Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Sports and other Yahoo properties.

Twitter users will also be able to share content from Yahoo through their Twitter streams, and Yahoo Search and Yahoo Media properties (i.e., News Finance, Entertainment, and more) will include real-time public Twitter updates.

Yahoo’s deal with Twitter comes hot on the heels of a similar content-sharing arrangement it forged with leading social network Facebook back in December of 2009.
