With talk that Google is considering another acquisition, this time involving Twitter, there are a lot of whispers that the company is quickly becoming the new Microsoft.  One article, for instance, recently reported that both Google and Microsoft were lucky enough to capture the most important sector of the computing scene at their moment in time.

As Twitter appears to be the hottest e-business currently, the acquisition seems logical, though skeptics wonder if Google is rushing the gun a bit.

Discussion Questions:
