Internet Marketing April 3rd, 2009
Could your next Tweet come with the Google brand attached to it?
Are Google Adwords content match advertising about to appear next to your Tweets?
There’s rumours coming out this morning that Google may purchase Twitter. The deal is rumoured to be worth $250 million. This would mark the second time Twitter founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone have done business with Google, having previously sold blogging software Blogger to Google five years ago.
Twitter feeds have been appearing in some Google search results, and developers have been adding plug-ins for browsers such as Firefox that add Twitter feeds to search results. This shows the incredible power Twitter has added to the social marketing and web marketing arenas.
Biz Stone himself has acknowledged the talks.
Watch for more on this story as it develops over the next few weeks.
