When and why does Google index tweets? The way in which Google indexes tweets has been very unclear. A new study tries to shed some light on this issue.
The study checked 19,000 tweets of 963 Twitter accounts that range from accounts with fewer than 10,000 followers to accounts with more than 5 million followers.
To find the tweets that were indexed by Google, the site search operator (site:) was used in combination with the URL search operator (inurl:).
