Twitter lashes out at Google search changes

SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - Twitter lashed out at changes Google Inc unveiled for its search engine on Tuesday, describing the changes as 'bad' for consumers and for Web publishers. Twitter, a micro-blogging service that allows its users to broadcast short, 140-character messages to groups of 'followers,' said Google's changes would make it tougher for people to find the breaking news often shared by users of its service. 'As we've seen time and time again, news breaks first on Twitter. As a result, Twitter accounts and Tweets are often the most relevant (search) results,' the company said in a statement. 'We're concerned that as a result of Google's changes, finding this information will be much harder for everyone. We think that's bad for people, publishers, news organisations and Twitter users,' the statement continued.
