Now, instead of going through the arduous task of logging into Twitter to find a tweet, you can search using Google.

Okay, admittedly, it’s not that hard to search in Twitter, but it is definitely easier to just go ahead and search with Google. The social media site and Google partnered up this week to begin showing tweets in search results.

So far, the tweets will only show when searched in Google’s mobile apps. They will begin to appear in the Google web searches soon.

According to Google’s blog announcing the feature:
Whether you’re interested in the latest from Taylor Swift, news about the #MadMenFinale, or updates on the NBA playoffs, you’ll have access to it directly from Google. Let’s use NASA as an example—just ask the Google app about “NASA Twitter,” and in the search results, you’ll see Tweets from @NASA.

It’s a great way to get real-time info when something is happening. And it’s another way for organizations and people on Twitter to reach a global audience at the most relevant moments.
While the feature is new to Google, the searchability of tweets in a search engine is not new. Bing has had searchable tweets since last year.
