Google News has joined Twitter. I find this interesting because the feed will competely cut Google out (with the exception of the Google hosted AP stories).
Google's recently been testing AdWords in Google News in the US and introducing various new picture timelines. This Twitter account bypasses all that as it'll drive traffic straight from platform or desktop clients to the newspapers.
Google's brand is likely to earn them many followers - however, the news here will not be breaking news, it won't be focused and there will be a lot of it. Not sure I'm keen to join.
