That's not really how you're supposed to use Twitter.

Blogs clash over whether Google could buy Twitter
Fri Apr 3, 10:47 am ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) Two prominent technology news blogs clashed on Friday morning over a report one of them issued that said Google Inc may try to buy Internet start-up Twitter.

TechCrunch proprietor Michael Arrington, citing three unnamed sources, said on Thursday night that Google would pay for Twitter in cash, stock or a combination of the two.

The companies are also considering working together on a Google real-time search engine, he wrote.

Hours after Arrington's blog entry, Kara Swisher reported on her Boomtown blog said the story was inaccurate, citing "a number of sources."

"In fact, Twitter and Google have simply been engaged in 'some product-related discussions,' according to one source," Swisher wrote.

Arrington could not be immediately reached for comment. TechCrunch stands by its story, said Robin Wauters, a blogger for the site who answered an e-mail directed at Arrington.

Twitter is a service that allows people to send short text messages to a network of friends. Its popularity is growing, particularly among journalists looking for new ways to get people to read their news and commentary.

The San Francisco, California-based company has yet to make any money. That has not stopped the technology world from speculating on who will scoop up the company, though co-founder Biz Stone told Reuters in March that it is not considering a merger or a buyout.

A Google spokeswoman declined to comment. Twitter could not be reached for comment.

Boomtown is a blog on the website All Things Digital, which is owned by Wall Street Journal Dow Jones & Co. That company, in turn, is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

I've never used Twitter because I've heard you need friends for that.

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

I've looked at a few celeb Twitter pages and saw absolutely nothing special. Nothing really all that important was being said. It's one thing if you have a favorite celeb you want to follow online and you go to their Twitter page (and I understand some celebs are having fun at making the most of it, such as Lily Allen giving away concert tickets by leaving clues on her Twitter page) but for average people, I certainly don't want to read every stray thought that enters your brain.

DVDTalk.com and my blog is enough for me, thanks. It might not be as trendy as Twitter, but oh well.

And of course it's easier if you use any of the Twitter clients. There are clients for all the OSes.

Definitely get Tweetdeck, Twhirl or if you're on mac Tweetie, makes twitter so much better. (I'm using Tweetdeck although sometimes it pisses me off).

I joined a few days ago, but it seems like only a few of my friends are tech-savvy enough to use it as well. It's pretty boring for me.

Finally took the plunge. Too bad someone already took my go to username. Going to have to sign up for everything just incase something interests me in the future (they aren't even using it, just parking it (I hate Sterling Benefits)).
