[Web 2.0 Summit] Twitter just made it official that Microsoft will have access to Twitter’s data in real-time. This new deal was demonstrated during a Bing demonstration. A similar deal with Facebook is also said to be in the works, although we will have to see what the details are. Microsoft is taking steps to gain an edge against Google when it comes to “real-time” web. No financial details were disclosed. Web 2.0 Summit continues live on live.ubergizmo.com
Update: so much for the “Edge”, Google is getting Twitter data access too.
