Eric Schmidt is an opinion that applications like twitter could be potentially great channel for product information, marketing real time and it will be logical strategy that we would like to pursue. Eric though did not mention specifically twitter in the Google’s earning call, still was of positive opinion towards application like twitter.
It would not come as a surprise to me if Google-Twitter deal strikes very soon. But for that, Google needs to come out of thinking twitter as poor man’s email system, they commented about just a month back.
I am sure if Google pursues this deal, it would be no beneficial than acquiring one more social networking application, making all our lives Google centric. I am afraid, I would be boarding a Google flight or train tomorrow, which I as social networking way at times . What you think about benefits of Google acquiring twitter?
Anyways, I think I was far behind in twitting though I had joined them a year back (I think on 4th May 2008). May be we can meet up each other on twitter, follow me at http://twitter.com/lifeiscolourful and will follow you.
