Google buys Jaiku is twitter next?


Twitter has generated more buzz than a blow-fly in 2007 and has all but set the trend of micro-blogging or mini-blogging. But it is Twitter rival Jaiku that steals the thunder with an undisclosed buyout from Google. The irony is interesting in this purchase…..Evan Williams (Twitter’s founder) originally sold Blogger to Google, so why did the “Big Search” pass on Twitter? My guess would be Twitter would have gone for a ton of dough in lieu of all the high valuations floating around the web 2.0 world and Twitter has received premium exposure. Always remember my 2 cents can sometimes be worth a penny. Let me know what you thoughts on Google’s purchase of Jaiku rather than twitter?
