Authoritative news from traditional outlets is not always a reliable source of news, so the decision engine adds real time social data from general public (netizens) into Bing News. The real-time updates from netizens (Internet citizens) were inserted into Bing News on the right bottom of the site via Twitter. By linking Twitter updates, the latest feature could help the decision engine users to compare and finding reliable sources. If readers do not like to see more updates, they can click “pause” to stop the data streaming.
With the addition of Twitter updates, the decision engine users can skim the latest headlines on Bing News. Those include Twitter hot news topics, breaking news, and top tweets. It is easier to find what and who are tweeting on certain topics.
