Twitter and Google on 5 February 2015 have signed a deal to make tweets searchable. The tweets will be available in Google search results which will benefit both companies.

Under the deal, Google will have complete access to tweets on the social networking site Twitter. The deal will make tweets available outside the Twitter.

The deal will give full access of Twitter's Firehose of tweets to search giant Google. The deal will benefit both companies as in recent years Google had to search Twitter's site to include its information.

Google and Twitter had signed a similar search deal worked in 2009, but the deal was ended in 2011. After this deal, Google launched its own social network competitor Google+, the very same year hoping to compete with the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

The companies opted not to renew the deal after it lapsed, though Twitter provided its data to Microsoft's Bing and Yahoo.

Dick Costolo is the CEO of Twitter Inc. Larry Page is the CEO of Google Inc.
