A Twitter app for Google Glass may be in the works. A Twitter user has apparently spotted a now-deleted tweet that was posted from a client called “Twitter for Glass”.
Twitter user Jonathan Gottfried put up a screenshot of a tweet that allegedly came from “Twitter for Glass”. The tweet came from an account called @MogroothMuddler, which has since been deleted, and contained a photo of a plant that was posted via Twitter for Glass, on Sunday.
While the tweet and the account have been deleted, the link to the photo still exists. The URL also points towards the @MogroothMuddler profile.
The tweet that sparked off speculation
TechCrunch recently stated that hints of a Twitter app for Google Glass emerged in the “Glass Collective” announcement last month. The Glass Collective is Google Ventures’ partnership with technology venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins. The firms are set to share seed investment for entrepreneurs and developers working to make software and hardware for Google Glass.
Now that the tweet has been deleted, we can only speculate whether it was a genuine mistake or a deliberate leak—something that app makers are resorting to these days.
It must also be noted that the tweet by @MorgroothMuddler read, “Just shared a photo #throughglass,” which makes it sound like the app posts updates on Twitter for you, instead of you doing it manually.
Google Glass could be slightly more visual than the Twitter populace will expect. Twitter is very text heavy and it will be interesting to see what the official Twitter app for Google Glass will eventually consist of. Besides the text angle, it could be possible that Twitter images and Vine videos will be promoted heavily.
Meanwhile, we’re bracing ourselves for more Google Glass app leaks. The next few months promise to be very exciting as far as Glass is concerned.
