Google Search is unable to display tweets and pages from Twitter in its results because of changes at Twitter which has affected the "ability to display tweets and pages from the site in search results," says spokesperson Lara Levin.

“Websites have control over whether crawlers can access their content," she detailed in a statement to The Verge.

Twitter has made some major changes over the past few days including blocking unregistered users from being able to browse tweets and placing a limit on the number of tweets users can read in a day.

Search Engine Land compared indexed Twitter URLs in Google search from Friday to Monday and discovered that Google indexed 471 million results for “site:twitter.com,” but on Monday it only had 180 million.

Twitter's ban on the tweet limits is supposedly temporary and once lifted, might reinstate previous results on Google Search. Twitter has also launched a new TweetDeck app when the original was inaccessible to many users, but has limited the new app to resgistered users only.
