Twitter has partnered with Yandex, the Russian web search giant, to include tweets in Yandex’s search results, reports TechCrunch.
This could potentially be a new source of revenue for Twitter — Yandex described it as a licensing arrangement and Microsoft paid Twitter $30 million for a similar deal.
Yandex will have access to all live tweets in every language, but special attention will be given to those in Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, or Kazakh.
Yandex is already a fairly social company, offering Google-like features to share articles, so this new arrangement with Twitter will help it build out its social strategy even more.
