Precisely they don't really might be needing it for instance. For the reasons that there are a lot of social networks which is a lot more popular and that can give some good benefits to their marketing businesses.

Totally disagree. Twitter is publishing more real-time search engine results than any other website. Being a part of Twitter means the potential to rank better in search.

Just do a search for something local and see how Twitter recommends tweets from locals that are connected on Page 1.

This will only increase as things become more real-time and locally focused.

You said right that twitter has not blogging service is a factor for that. In my view small business sites has not as much healty against their site as the big one. They have to concentrate to bring their sites in search engines and get more traffic which they required.
