Now, no matter what phone you have, whether it is a Blackberry Curve or something else, if you have Facebook or Twitter, you have access to the World Wide Web! Well you may be sat there thinking “That’s a fairly obvious statement!” Well yes it is, but soon enough, if rumours are to be believed then you may no longer be logging onto Facebook or Twitter separately you could very well be logging on to one joint account for both social networking sites. Yes that’s right one account for both sites. This is only after rumours, not truth, fact and it has almost certainly not yet been confirmed.
In a recent interview at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams was asked about whether Twitter would be open to doing more integration with Facebook to which he replied: “I think you’d have to ask Mark (Zuckerberg) that. But you missed your opportunity.” Williams joked, as Mark Zuckerberg; Facebook’s founder had been interviewed on the stage the day before. So if you’re an avid Twitterer but still have an allegiance with Facebook then this would, we imagine be a dream come true for you!
Now talking handsets, there are some very good handsets available on the market at the minute and if you are after one of the handsets then you will just have to look around a little a bit, for example, there are some very good Blackberry Curve deals in our stores as well as some other handsets that are available. Blackberry’s aren’t really the best handsets for Facebook and Twitter a like but they aren’t bad.
At the minute though, Twitter are pondering whether or not to raise a new round of financing and there are rumours circulating that there are various venture firms that are champing at the bit to lead this new round of financing. There are a few investors being touted, but lets be honest if you had loads and loads of cash then would you really want to be chucking $100million of your hard earned cash into Twitter? I know for a fact, I wouldn’t want too! But some of the potential investors that are being touted around at the minute are Russian firm DST who have invested already in Zynga, Groupon and last but not least, Facebook itself are supposedly leading the race for who will lead the next round of investment.
Whether or not Twitter do get that extra investment you can be certain that it won’t be going down the pan anytime soon after they raised $100million little over a year ago!
