    One of the key features Apple points to in iOS5 is its Twitter integration. They've taken that even a step further by adding the feature to their OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion operating system. At a glance, this seems like a logical more since there are somewhere around 350 million Twitter users out there. That sounds great, except there are over 850 million Facebook users out there....hmmmm.

    I understand the not-so-lovey relationship between FB and Apple, but I'm convinced the majority of iPhone users would rather FB integration over Twitter, as there are 500 million or so more FB users than Twitter users. So the question is, did Apples pride lead them down the wrong path, or was this a legitimate business decision that has yet to bear its fruit?

    IMO....iOS should have both integrated.

    Facebook is a blight on social networks and has become nothing more than a gaming site.

    Twitter is a brilliant social network, and vastly superior to FB in every way.

    Seems like a very narrow minded view. I personally find them both very useful for different things, and none of them involve gaming. I like FB for keeping up with friends and family....and I like Twitter for keeping up with the rest of the world. I try not to be overly critical of other peoples comments, but that just came across as pure ignorance......seems like trolling to me, guess I fell for it.

    Facebook Integration Coming To iOS 5? [SCREENSHOTS] | Redmond Pie
    I was interested to read about that, but the linked article above mentioned nothing about it, only that there was a possibility that we would see such integration in iOS5, which we all know didn't happen.

    "Despite past issues, such as Facebooks planned integration with the Cupertino companys Ping being scrapped at the very last minute, Apple and Facebook could find allies in each other in the mutual battle against Google." - This was scrapped because they didn't come to an agreement.. I can't find the original article which discusses the deal though

    It's a shame....I guess that's what happens when you get 2 of the biggest egos in the world in the same room. I wonder what the sticking point was. Remember when Apple and Verizon couldn't come to an agreement.....boy I bet Verizon regretted that.

    After I joined twitter I started to hate facebook. Twitter is designed to be simple and intuitive. And that's a big win in comparison with facebook. So I think Apple+Twitter will do just fine.
