Is Google+ a bigger threat to Twitter than it is to Facebook? — Tech News and Analysis

I believe the expanding and accelerating competition between Facebook and Google will be disruptive to many other social players, especially Twitter, Foursquare, and the leading blogging services

Since Google+ came out, there’s been a lot of focus on whether it’s a “Facebook-killer,” in part because it has a lot of similar features such as photo-sharing and status updates, but also because Google+ “Circles” seem like such a big improvement on what Facebook offers. But there’s just as much — if not more — reason to see Google’s offering as a Twitter competitor, and some users are already talking about how they are using Twitter less and Google+ more. Is the Google network just benefitting from “shiny new object” syndrome, or is it a real threat?
