Google’s indexing of tweets has gone up by 466% compared to what it was four months ago, yet more than 96% of tweets still remain unindexed, according to a report from Stone Temple Consulting. The jump in the number of indexed tweets can be attributed to the deal between the two digital giants earlier this year. At the time, just 0.6% of tweets were indexed by Google, which shot up to 3.4% in June.

Google favors Twitter accounts with a high follower account and particularly the people with a higher social authority. Analysis of the indexed tweets shows a correlation between indexation and those with higher engagement levels and overall ‘authority’. Tweets get indexed within the first seven days.

Content in Twittersphere that gets indexed includes tweets, trending hashtags and Twitter pages. Google has direct access to Twitter’s steam, which substantially reduces the resources required to quickly identify and index content.
