Google May Be Bringing Twitter To Desktop Search Results
Twitter integration into Google's desktop search is spotted in the UK. Up to now, it was only on mobile and in the US.
In May, Google started displaying Twitter results in a limited way, only on mobile and only within the US. Now it appears that Google is experimenting with bringing such results outside the country and to the desktop.

Conductor tells us that they are seeing similar results with brands and celebrities that have large followings on Twitter and were recently active on the social network.
We haven’t been able to replicate the results on this side of the Atlantic. We’re checking with Google for confirmation.
Postscript: A Google spokesperson confirmed that the company has been experimenting with displaying Twitter in desktop search results since mid-July: “We don’t have more to announce for now.”
