Twitter integration is coming to Apple’s mobile operating system

Apple has announced that Twitter will be wrapped into Apple’s iOS 5 operating system for mobile devices, putting the social tool front and center for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The decision follows Apple’s falling out with Facebook over its Ping social music service, and could help Twitter establish itself as a counterbalance to Facebook’s dominance of the social scene, observers say. “Facebook is said to [be] building its own mobile phone environment and will become competitive with Apple in the near future. Twitter is now emerging as an independent choice for mobile platform companies,” Om Malik writes.  GigaOm
