Twitter Slams Google’s Changes

Twitter lashed out at changes Google Inc unveiled for its search engine on Tuesday, describing the changes as “bad” for consumers and for Web publishers.

Twitter, a microblogging service that allows its users to broadcast short, 140-character messages to groups of “followers,” said Google’s changes would make it tougher for people to find the breaking news often shared by users of its service.
“As we’ve seen time and time again, news breaks first on Twitter. As a result, Twitter accounts and Tweets are often the most relevant (search) results,” the company said in a statement.
