Google + Twitter = Twoogling?

Now there is a buzz around on Twitter is Google+Twitter=Twoogling now. Haha may be its right to say so :). Now you be wondering what might be the first message from Google. Well its a binary message [Check the screen shot above].

“I’m 01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010”

Which may be Roughly translated to : I’m F E E L I N G L U C K Y. Ahh thats a google sign.

Now the interesting things to note here is, Google's entrance into Twitter is warm welcomed by its rivals Yahoo and Live Search. Which in turn is greeted with a thanks. Now how often you find such gestures among your rivals ;).
