Following up on Google’s agreement with Twitter to instantly add tweets to web search results, the duo announced today that users on mobile devices will start seeing real-time Twitter results as well. The feature is available in the Google app on Android or Google’s mobile website, and is expected to make its way to the desktop soon.

Now when you search for a person, hashtag, or popular topic of discussion, you’ll find related tweets on your results page. Like all other results, the position of the Twitter results on the page will be determined by their relevance to your search terms.

Unfortunately for international users, Twitter results will only be available to users in the United States for the time being.
