    "Google has quietly invited a handful of advertisers to test a new display-ad integration with Twitter. The layout of the ads is simple: The familiar Twitter bird is in the left-hand corner, and the advertiser's latest tweet is featured in a box centered in the unit. A button to the right reads "Follow on Twitter," allowing users to become a follower of the advertiser without leaving the page.
    The ads are linked to the client's Twitter account, allowing it to always dynamically insert every tweet. Clicking on any part of the ad other than the "Follow on Twitter" button takes the user to the advertiser's Twitter page. The ads are appearing on sites in the Google content network."

    And now suddenly one of Twitter's lead developer has left the company saying he doesn't want to work for an ad company!

    Is this only coincidence, i don't think so. It seems Twitter is facing big changes, and it's just the beginning...

    Google already has a live twitter feed so they could well be looking into it.
