Twitter and Tumblr Joining Services?

I was trying to look through search.twitter.com today and noticed that I got the fail whale of death.

As my frustration grew because I could not search something I needed (#betterdayschallenge) I noticed something very peculiar.

Check out what is in the top right corner:

Twitter and Tumblr joining forces?

At first I thought I was on a fake twitter site, but that couldn’t be because it was twitter.com/search.
Then I just thought it was a weird mistake that my computer started freaking out, but that too was not the issue.

The more I think about it, twitter and tumblr joining forces could be a very real possibility.

Here is a thought:
The reason twitter and tumblr could be joining forces on the search.twitter.com side of things is for the feature of gathering content, conversation, and news. As Gary Vee has made search.twitter.com a necessary for any business, tumblr could bring in some great features that allow people to follow conversations and gain more attention to conversations.

I would love to hear what you have to say on this. What could Twitter and Tumblr possibly be doing here?

  1. Interesting to see this change https://twitter.com/#!/search-home

    It’s got a blue box there. I don’t recognize that page design.

  2. Hmm…I didn’t get the Tumblr buttons when I visited Twitter Search today. Maybe I just didn’t visit at the right time to see it. I can’t even imagine how Twitter and Tumblr could join forces in a way that would keep their unique features while also being successful. I guess we might see.

  3. I’m with Brian, I don’t recognize that design. This would be pretty cool though. Seems like a move twitter would make too. We’ll see…

  4. Interesting. Very interesting.

  5. That is interesting. Hmm… not sure what that would look like exactly. It would definitely change the foundation of what Twitter was originally about, but then again, it’s been moving in that direction for a little over a year now.

    Wouldn’t be surprising.
