The vandals took the handle

Social media, PR, journalism, football and anything that isn't politically correct

Jostling for a piece of Twitter action

As micro-blogger, Twitter, continues to gain enormous publicity and extraordinary growth, some of the big boys are apparently keen to get a slice of the action. 

The hot tip was a huge bid from Google.  Although I wasn’t exactly thrilled at the thought, at least Google knows search well – and Twitter is rapidly becoming all about real time search.

Then (shudder) came the suggestion that Microsoft – looking pretty much like a dinosour as social media continues to transform communication – might also be in there bidding. This thought left me as cold as the earlier attempts by Facebook to muscle in.

But the latest, according to prominent blogger, Rob Scoble, is that a Google bid is not on.  Watching with interest.
