According to LA Times, internet portal Yahoo and Twitter have announced plans to offer Twitter feeds on all of Yahoo’s E-mail accounts.

Yahoo reached a similar agreement with Facebook in December 2009, making it easier for users to share Facebook status updates and other information. And now it’s a twitter’s turn to integrate with Yahoo.

Twitter offers millions of messages posted every minute. “The information in one single tweet can travel light years farther with this Yahoo integration,” Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in a statement. “Tweets in more places brings relevance where and when you need it most.”

Jim Stoneham, vice president of communities for Yahoo said: “The partnerships with Twitter and Facebook will roll out later this year. The deals will enable users to take material from both sites without having to leave either one. Specifically, users will be able to access their Twitter feed on Yahoo’s sites. They will also be able to update their Twitter status and share content from Yahoo. And Yahoo search and media properties will include Twitter updates.”

Twitter feeds in Yahoo’s search results will begin to show up immediately and the rest of the details of the deal will roll out later this year. [via LATimes]
