Google and Twitter are teaming up to help surface relevant tweets when you search for a wide range of topics, improving results with real-time posts.

If you’re searching on a mobile device, you’ll get Twitter results in a scrolling box along the top of the page. That includes the latest tweets from individual users (say, Taylor Swift) or popular tweets for subjects and hashtags. Tapping a tweet takes you to the Twitter site, not the app.

Twitter results don’t show up in every query. For example, searching for GeekWire brings up our site first with popular Tweets below that, while searching for Yellowstone doesn’t have any Twitter results at all on the first page.

Right now, Twitter integration is limited to mobile devices in the U.S., in the Google search app for iOS and Android. A desktop version is coming soon, and international rollout is expected in the coming months.
