Twitter To Start Selling Followers

“While not quite as bad as it sounds, Twitter will soon be identifying followers with certain interests based on the content of their Twitter usage, and then [1]providing this info to advertisers. Twitter is already selling sponsored Tweets for $100K or more. These reader comments captured the disquieting feeling I have: ‘Twitter selling followers? Will that be the same as Google selling top position in SERP?’ and ‘I wonder when Facebook will start to sell friends.’ Advertisers will be allowed to purchase placement in lists of ‘who to follow’ recommendations targeted to users with particular interests on Twitter.”

66% of All Windows Users Still Use Windows XP

“Almost one year after the introduction of Windows 7 it appears that the hype surrounding it has faded. The overall market share of Windows has turned into a slight decline again. Windows 7 is gaining share, but cannot keep pace with the loss of Windows XP and Vista. Especially Windows XP users seem to be happy with what they have and appear to be rather resistant to Microsoft’s pitches that it is time to upgrade to Windows 7.”

Google TV News

HBO, Netflix, Pandora and the NBA are just a few of the big-name brands teaming up with Google for the rollout of Google TV.

The web giant’s “multimillion-channel TV” system is expected to launch some time this fall. Run by Google’s Android operating system, it will let users view all kinds of Web content on their televisions.

*Facebook and Skype: Lovers?

According to All Things D’s Kara Swisher, Facebook and Skype are about to announce a partnership that includes “integration of SMS, voice chat and Facebook Connect.”

It’s not clear exactly what this deal would entail, but possibilities include Facebook Chat over a browser to cell phones, and video chat among Facebook friends.

Microsoft is scheduled to announce its first line of Windows Phone 7 products in a New York press conference next week.

Reporters this morning received an invitation to an October 11 event, where Microsoft will announce which carriers and manufacturers will be making and selling handsets based on Microsoft’s next mobile operating system. The company will also preview the first line of Windows Phone 7 hardware.
