    Didn't one of the Google board call twitter a "poor mans email"?

    Google Ads on twitter would make it annoying I think. Especially if they went down the Intellitxt route.

    I admit I have never tried it... on the other hand I also don't really see the point. Mini messages? About all there is room for is telling people what you had for lunch and frankly I don't care. Reporting news this way is also pretty pointless... all you have room for is a headline which results in having to go somewhere to see the full story... at which point I will just us an RSS feed which at least isn't limited.

    i'm pretty sure this exact rumour was floating around the blogs last week, and everybody decided it was bullcrap.

    Wow, a little behind are we bit-tech? 3 days ago it was known that Twitter wasn't even in talks.
