Twitter Partners With Russia's Yandex To Display Search Results

Twitter is partnering with Russia's largest web portal to integrate their content into web search. Yandex, announced a partnership with Twitter Tuesday, in which all of the microblog’s public tweets will be accessible through Yandex’s search engine almost instantaneously.
Is this a sign of Twitter trying to maneuver its way around Google? Last month, Twitter slammed Google for its decision to integrate Google+ results into search as part of its “Search Plus Your World” update.
“As we’ve seen time and time again, news breaks first on Twitter,” the company said in a statement. “We’re concerned that as a result of Google’s changes, finding this information will be much harder for everyone.”
With the partnership with Yandex, you can search the site for hastags and usernames. Google said they don't index the "@" symbol. Tweets will be in Russian, Belarusian, Ukranian and Kazakh, as well as other top results in other languages.
Yandex’s Blog Search Manager Anton Pavlov says:
“People share news, exchange opinions and discuss all sorts of matters in real time all the time. This kind of information will help us enhance our search results,” Pavlov says.
