Twitter has reportedly reached a deal with Google to make its tweets more searchable online, according to Bloomberg, which cites people with knowledge of the matter.
Tweets will be visible in Google search results as soon as they are posted, starting during the first half of the year.
Twitter and Google engineers have started working on the project, Bloomberg says, but there are no details on the terms of the deal.
Twitter and Google already had such a deal in place in 2011, but it was pulled after Google launched its own competing social network, Google Plus, that aimed squarely at Facebook and Twitter. Since then, Google had to crawl Twitter for indexing tweets, which it will no longer have to do -- they will now come directly from Twitter.
