Whack the Dog

Google has begun to mix Google+ results into your searches:

Google says that the new feature, which it calls Search Plus Your World, is one of the biggest changes it has ever made to its search results. People will see posts and photos from their friends, profiles of their friends when they search people’s names, and conversations occurring on Google+ related to topics they search.

Now, Twitter has complained. Liz Gannes, for All Things D:

In a statement, Twitter complained that “people, publishers, news organizations and Twitter users” would suffer from not being able to quickly see tweets in search results

Google is seeing how far it can push its own products before the EU lays a smackdown.
