Google, Yahoo On Twitter, Too!

Even Google and Yahoo use Twitter to “sms” their users…





A quick check on Microsoft on Twitter reveals that Microsoft is there too but appeared to be a fake one (0 following, 238 followers & 0 updates). Anyway, Microsoft Live Search is there for real @Live_Search.

I noticed that @google, @yahoo and @Live_Search are following each other!
