Microsoft, Google sparring over Twitter !

Microsoft, Google sparring over Twitter? Should be interesting… http://bit.ly/9JbJb

The explosive growth of Twitter has evoked great interest among both Google and Microsoft to acquire the company. For Google this would immediately fill the gap in their search of real-time results and give them an even bigger share of the search market. For Microsoft, this would be a way to gain a desperately needed competitive edge for Bing.   While this would be a huge win for either company, it may not be the best thing for Twitter itself.  I think the  real potential  of Twitter is yet to be fully realized and if it merges into either giant – this may be jeopardized.
