    For a company that isn’t supported by advertising, instead favouring sponsored Tweets and accounts, every revenue stream is crucial – particularly one that is potentially worth $30million. Whilst extension talks are ongoing; Twitter will no doubt be sweating over the much-needed investment whilst social search could be on the brink of another major upheaval.

    TwitterThis morning hackers accessed Fox News’ Twitter Account and announced to the world that the U.S. President, Barack Obama, had been shot dead. Worryingly, this came from a verified account. It’s another example in a long list of high profile hacks on Twitter.

    Last week, British actor Simon Pegg admitted that his Twitter account had also been hacked. A link was posted to download a screensaver from his recent movie, ‘Paul’, which was actually in fact a login-stealing malware virus. So, two hacks in two weeks, is this the start of something major?
