Google is testing a new feature that lets you connect your Twitter account to Google News. Some people are seeing a Friendsť box on the right hand side of Google News inviting them to do this.

The experiment appears in a Friendsť section that some users can see on the bottom right-hand column of Google News. If you enter your Twitter username into the open text box and hit save,ť a list of updates featuring news articles by those you follow will appear. Google says only articles found in Google News will be shown.
