Bing’s new twitter account is still making its way by having 5 tweets so far. The first is about the feature that has been launched 7 months ago which is of no use at present.

The second tweet was as promised a tip for the lesser-known search feature. Remaining other tweets were about the partnership with Xbox, a retweet of another team member, and the announcement of this new account.

@MSBing_Dev is not verified yet hence publishing this news on the Bing blog is a good strategy. The account is shown to be registered in July itself.
It might consider as a competition to Google’s @searchliaison Twitter account. Google’s account is run by Danny Sullivan.
Google’s @searchliaison Twitter Account
This account was set up years back for direct communication. But later it has been consider as a news source about new updates or algorithm changes, and any new bug found which is affecting search engine ranking and much more.
Having Danny Sullivan as the official Google Search Liason gives it more authenticity to the users rather than running with some engineers.
Well, this is a new platform for Bing and it will be interesting to watch how it may turn when the regular posting of content will begin.
