Trending: Real estate giant JLL teams up with Google on new digital assistant app for office workers, challenging Alexa and Cortana

Twitter confirmed on its earnings conference call with financial analysts that it has reached a deal with Google to provide the search company with a fire hose of its data. As previously rumored, the deal will give Google access to up-to-the minute data from tweets as they’re posted to the social network to draw new people to it.
