Google Now Displaying Facebook & Twitter Sitelinks?

I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw sitelinks displayed on Google.com for a branded Twitter search! I haven’t heard a lot of buzz about this but apparently sitelinks are being displayed for Facebook as well. Aside from the screenshot below, I am also seeing sitelinks displayed for brands like Coca Cola, HP and Best Buy but most don’t seem to have it.

This really opens up a lot of questions for me:

  1. Are social sitelinks only available to big brands?
  2. How does Google determine what sitelinks to display – especially for Twitter?
  3. Can you control / edit them in any way?
  4. Do external links play a part?
  5. Etc.

What questions do you have? Have you seen any similar results? Leave them in the comments!
