    If its true, as long as Google doesn't change how twitter issues bans I don't care. Currently twitter is pretty lenient on what they allow as long as your not making threats or engaging in fraud they seem to not care.

    What's the big deal? Google owns a lot of stuff, as does FaceBook, Microsoft, Apple, etc., etc. I really don't see a problem with it. They probably just want the user data like every other company does.

    Google is good, and twitter and FB are also cool. No issue at all.

    Google wants the real time trends... They are hungry for this.

    Not gonna make any difference to my life at-least. Never seriously used twitter, neither for personal life, nor for IM ( did manage to get some $$ but lol.. that remained two figures :p )..

    As for being a social network, I think twitter will soon die if google buys it. Look at Orkut, Youtube for example.
