Google Twittering: Update

On March 10th we asked ‘Google Twittering’ . This was prompted by an interesting column in eCommerce Times titled ‘Will Twitter Be Google's Next YouTube?’

Today the rumours just increased as a TechCrunch article, ‘Google-in-late-stage-talks-to-buy-Twitter’ claimed that Google is in advanced negotiations to acquire the micro-blogging site Twitter. Having just had a makeover and networked it search features, one questions whether this was mere window dressing for the sale.

Whatever happens Twitter valuation is increasing by the week as it finds its way into everyday vocabulary. Its search capability of ‘real time information’ must now have significant appeal to the likes of Google.
