Bing was the first of the big search engines to integrate Twitter into results, albeit, not in the most exciting of implementations. Today, Microsoft’s fledgling search tool is doing a bit more with Twitter, launching BingTweets, a separate site that combines Bing search with Twitter search and trending topics. For example, search BingTweets for “All Star Game” and on one part of the page, the Bing search results will load, and next to them, recent tweets containing the same term. BingTweets also has a built-in option for tweeting the search result, as well as a “Trending Topics” box that extends beyond Twitter’s top ten to include currently popular topics, places, people, and products.

But this being a Microsoft product, it does not work for now, at least for me, though it seems to work for some people :)
