Another week has arrived and with it, here are the social media updates you need to know about:
- Tweets Now Indexed in Google Search: Twitter and Google just struck a deal to include tweets in Google search results. Tweets will be available in search as they are published in real-time. The deal significantly expands Twitter’s reach since Google commands 75% of the search market.
- Twitter Adds Quick Promote Advertising Feature: Twitter had added Quick Promote to its range of advertising tools for small- to medium-sized organizations. Quick promote allows users to easily begin promoting their best performing tweets. The tool is available through the Analytics Tweet activity dashboard.
