Twitter: The Bird is the Word
Twitter is tweeting...sorry...talking to a lot of companies!
Is everyone starting to talk like Elmer Fudd or what? Sheesh! :-)
Just a quick post about everything going on with Twitter. It doesn't surprise me that Twitter is talking to a number of different companies. Twitter's growth rate is downright scary.
And the big boys are taking notice.
The companies interested in purchasing Twitter see a lot of potential in such a tiny function. Twitter provides a ton of features that any company would love to acquire, such as:
- Mini-blogging engine (mini as in 140 characters)
- A complete search engine
- Information organized by groups by the user
- API data streams
- Near real-time conversations (which is next, btw)
What company wouldn't want these features? Lately, it seems that the bird is the word....
Sorry, I couldn't resist. :-)
Along with the possible acquisition of Twitter, everyone wants to keep up with the Jones with the latest trends. Here are some sites that utilize Twitter to track trends on the Internet. You could even use them to track the Twitter acquisition?
Also, Tweet me if you get the chance. ;-)
