    I guess it's time to build a few Twitter accounts with tens of thousands of followers.
    I already have a few of those. Will look at what I can do with this

    I have noticed that already twitter comments are ranking for certain keyterms.

    I guess that twitter will now be some sort of competitor for google news, which does make a lot of sense considering that twitter is where you are getting news before the tv stations manage to break them.

    Twitter accounts are becoming a valuable asset. There's going to be some disputes on who owns the twitter accounts? There's a good article on this at Search Engine Journal

    Are you talking about shortURL.com - free short URL redirect with no ads! ? That's still a rediredtion so you won't get a backlink.

    That a lot better than the tiny url. How did you set that?

    wondering if the time has arrived to switch to shorter length URLs instead of using url shorting programs??

    .
    so now employers who never really understood twitter's values are going after their employees' accounts just because they have previously mentioned the company with them?

    All links in Twitter are nullified with the nofollow attribute. Google and Bing will most likely do the same. Any URL that is longer than 25 characters is automatically converted to a short URL by Twitter. A good ranking could drive traffic, but probably will not create backlinks.

    I cannot see where adding tweets to search results will do anything beneficial. 99%+ of all tweets are useless crap.

    I am not sure how Bing will deal with it, but Google will likely use an artificial ranking process, as they do with YouTube. There aren't any merits in a 140 character or less tweet that would allow it to compete with a web page, and you cannot point backlinks to a tweet.

    The ranking process will probably be based upon keywords in the tweet plus how many followers retweet the message to others.

    It could happen especially if the employees were twitting from a company computer while on the clock.

    Twitter at this point seems to me to be more of a marketing tool for microblogging.

    If you type "twitter account name + twitter", it will even list down individual tweets made by the person. I can see that some famous profile has several lines appearing in the search results.
