Microsoft Bing and Twitter extend search partnership

Engagements have been announced on Twitter — the Prince William-Kate Middleton one most prominently.

So why not reveal a Bing-Twitter deal via a series of coy tweets?

Microsoft’s Bing and Twitter announced the renewal of their real-time search partnership Tuesday via Twitter posts talking about how great their previous two-year partnership has been.

Then Bing tweeted: “@Twitter Let’s say we stick together and do bigger and better things?…”

Replied Twitter: “@bing We’re in. Can’t wait for what comes next.”

The posts did not indicate what the partnership will involve or what the terms of the agreement are.

AllThingsD reported in July that Twitter was asking for about $30 million a year in licensing fees for its real-time stream, as well as more user interface control, a larger cut of ads sold next to its tweets and more linking back to Twitter. That was after negotiations to continue providing Google with Twitter’s data stream had fallen apart earlier this summer.

Twitter spokeswoman Carolyn Penner Storified the tweet exchange between Twitter and Bing Tuesday:
