Twitter lashes out at Google search changes

January 16, 2012

Google launched a social network in June, dubbed Google+, that offers many of the capabilities available on Twitter and on Facebook.

With Tuesday’s changes to Google’s search engine, photos and posts from Google+ will increasingly appear within the search results.

The changes effectively create customized search results for people who are logged in to Google. A person who searches for the term “Hawaii,” for example, might find private photos that their friends have shared on Google+ as well as public information about the islands.

Twitter’s general counsel, Alex Macgillivray, a former Google attorney, said in a Tweet on Tuesday that Google’s changes “warped” Web searches and represented a “bad day for the Internet.”
