Google Joins Twitter, The Online World Goes Haywire

I cover Google a lot here, because that is what people talk about in the forums - mostly. But yesterday, Google joined Twitter at http://twitter.com/google and the online world went berserk. Google has 26,093 right now and it is growing. Yahoo http://twitter.com/yahoo only has 4,709 and they have been on Twitter for a while, and Live Search http://twitter.com/live_search only has 1,434 followers. Let's not forget Ask.com http://twitter.com/askdotcom with a whopping 94 followers.

Google joins and gets 25,000 in 24 hours. What brand power!

FYI, if you want to follow me on Twitter, I am at http://twitter.com/rustybrick. I only have 3,400 followers right now.

Barry, Google's power is intense. I thought this was awkward for Google to join Twitter, because over at web pro news, I read about why Google should buy Twitter out.

Barry, your not doing too bad yourself: "3,400 followers right now", you're almost neck and neck with Yahoo. I think I'll add another 1 and make it 3401 today.

I think Twitter is great but could I just change the subject slightly, how can Twitter be used from an SEO point of view or can you not use it for that purpose?
