Clash Of The Tech Titans

Google, Facebook, and Twitter duke it out in the escalating guest-speaker arms race. Who will win?

THE GEEKS shall inherit ... the A-list? Don't laugh just yet. As Twitter, Google, and Facebook become the go-to platforms for sharing information, their HQs are hosting more VIPs than ever. But all celebrity appearances are not created equal. Whereas most Twitter visits are drop-ins captured on camera phone, Google uploads its expertly staged talks to YouTube, where they've logged 16 million hits.
