New Twitter Developments

Announced today, Twitter has chose Google Friend Connect over Facebook's Friend Connect service. This means Twitter account holders can use their login ID on any other site also integrated with Google Friend Connect. Google wants their users to sign up for the connect service so they can better keep tabs on how users behave across the web. Whats this all mean? This data can be used now to lead to better, more profitable ads and ad networks in the future.

The score: Google 1 Facebook 0
