It’s attached to a random Googler and holds the bio “News and updates from Google.”The first tweet came sometime around 7pmÂ EST last night, and Google already has nearly 12,000 followers. It is following 37. Among those being followed by Google? A bunch of Googlers, and Google product accounts. Danny Sullivan, and John Battelle are also in the mix. And of course Biz Stone and Evan Williams.Among those being followed by Google? A bunch of Googlers, and Google product accounts. Danny Sullivan, and John Battelle are also in the mix.

Google on Twitter
The Google Twitter account is long overdue, but very appreciated as the number of followers clearly illustrates. For one, this adds to Google’s extensive list of sources for distributing updates about the company, also containing quite a few blogs.
The list of followers is a useful guide to other Googlers to follow. The product-specific accounts aren’t just spewing out links to the blog posts either. For those wanting to keep up with every facet of what Google is doing, this is a treasure trove.
