Google News Shows the Number of Shared Links

Google News continues to integrate with Twitter and other microblogging services. After testing a section that shows newsworthy tweets from your subscription, Google started to add to the Google News Onebox the number of times a story has been shared.

For example, Google's Onebox shows that this article about Google TV has been shared by more than 50 Twitter users. Google links to the realtime results for this article, but the page only includes 10 results.


  1. I don't think adding too much in the search results will do any good to Google because personally i like it because the search results are clean and targetted. Recently when i enter any search query that twitter feed pops up and slides as it gets updated every second it annoys me.
