44

Yahoo and Twitter hath forgeth a strategic relationship that will see Yahoo’s web portal deliver popular tweets based on the user’s search history (a.k.a. interests). The new partnership will begin in the USA first, where users will see the new service in action in a few days. This will be possible both on the desktop and the mobile platforms.

Yahoo is reportedly looking to acquire the social network Tumblr for the predictable sum of 1 billion US dollars. With 107 million microblogs on their hands, Tumblr could significantly boost Yahoo’s visits and user base – probably mostly by teens. Both sides remain silent when asked to comment.
