Microsoft's Bing search engine stood front and center at the Web 2.0 Summit Oct. 21. In the morning, Bing Director Stefan Weitz discussed how Bing is targeting Google. That was just a warm-up. Later, Qi Lu, president of Microsoft's online services division, invited Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of Microsoft's online audience business, to unveil the Bing Twitter site. Bing Twitter indexes full Twitter content, including tweets and short links from Bit.ly, all to present a fire hose of real-time data for users. It's exciting, particularly because Google isn't indexing Twitter in real time ... yet. Take a stroll with Bing in this eWEEK slide show.
