Announced yesterday night at a talk by Krishna Bharat at Columbia’s J-school, Google News story pages will now have story-related tweets. Bharat, the founder of Google News, is also working on an update to its user interface. The update, according to Bharat, will be “a slider system of some kind” and will launch soon.

Bharat was pushed by Columbia J-school’s Dean of Students, Sree Sreenivasan, about a more concrete release date, but Bharat said he did not want to comment on it.
