For google, it is all about them and making money.
If they can not monetize something, they walk away.
So twitter moving into finally doing advertising, meant google was out of the loop.
So google walked away.
Best thing that can happen to twitter is to go their own way and leave google alone.
And I have been using Bing 90% of the time!
It came built in with the new computer and I am just too lazy to dump bing and msn from the emachines set up (emachines and ms are like intertwined!).
It tough to say what happened. But you have to figure that the advertising was an issue.

Coming back online.
Will be drawing from google+
Not sure how that will work.
Maybe they will finally work a deal with twitter.
Google +1 doesn't look like a great source for breaking news like Twitter. Perhaps, Google is working on a deal with Twitter or rolling out their own Google+1 micro-blog.
