Anything You Can Do.

There's a lot of discussion today about a story that TechCrunch broke which is sourced from two separate people close to the supposed negotiations.

The rumour is that Google is in late stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. Whether this is true we will have to wait and see but I'm hopeful that it's not true and that the service is allowed to spread it's wings a while longer before it's acquired. The value of Twitter can't be brought into question although Twitter founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone have been in this situation before. They sold Blogger to Google five years ago so will the same occur here? I'm sure we will find out soon enough!

Another story filtering through today is that Friendfeed are to release a new UI Monday and it's rumoured to be very impressive. I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg will be watching closely :)
