Yahoo is all in a twitter
SUNNYVALE, California: Yahoo is jumping on the Twitter bandwagon in its latest attempt to improve its internet search engine and lure back some of its dwindling audience.
Beginning on Thursday, Yahoo will mine the short messages posted on Twitter to find fresher information about hot topics. It follows a similar move by Microsoft Corp. The addition comes at a pivotal time for Yahoo.
The company is bogged down in a three-year financial slump, partly because it is losing ground in the lucrative internet search market to Google and Microsoft. – Sapa-AP
