To explore more options in real-time search, Bing in association with Federated Media and Twitter has released BingTweets, which is described as:

“BingTweets combines Twitter trends with Bing search results, enabling you to see deeper, real-time information about the hottest topics on Twitter. You can also search for anything in the BingTweets search box (at the top right of every page) and see Bing search results alongside the most recent related tweet.”

BingTweets integrates Twitter and Bing's search interface. It pulls in trends from Twitter and filters into categories such as “Popular Now,” “People,” “Places,” “Products” which allows easier navigations of the changing trends on the internet. However, there is a limitation to it in terms of displaying search results. Although, BingTweets allow simultaneous search on both Twitter and Bing, but is doesn't display the results in one integrated SERPs.

BingTweets includes two search box options. One of the search box has been positioned at the top, which allows users to search both Bing and Twitter at the same time. The main part of the site shows results from Bing while the sidebar displays Twitter search results.

If you do search on Twitter you'll see the same results as on the Twitter search results. The other search box is the Bing.com. When a user searches on this search box, it will search through Bing's index and not Twitter. In spite of this drawback, BingTweets proves quite helpful especially if you're using Twitter heavily and you need to search both the Twitter tinmeline and the web. BingTweets also provides the option for tweeting and sharing searches you've performed on it.
