Well, any of you who know me will know I don't use Twitter , don't know what it is and quite frankly don't care either.

But Jill loves it and recommends it, I guess there is something in it otherwise according to an article I read at the following blog.. http://www.marketing...re-twitter.html

Google wouldn't want to buy it.

So those who love Twitter, do you see this as a good or bad thing, or is it just hype?

I'm with Jill on this one. Dunno if they will, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they buy Twitter. I'm not even sure they'd have to or want to monetize it. As we were discussing in another recent thread the data alone would be a goldmine for them.

twitter screams google's style. I would bet that they would purchase it. They could easily incorporate AdWords with tweets like they do with the content of emails.

Yeah I've been surprised that I haven't seen adwords when doing a search at search.twitter.com. (Of course my adblock might be blocking them if they are there.)
