“Imagine being able to follow a New York Times journalist directly from her byline, tweet about a video without leaving YouTube, and discover new Twitter accounts while visiting the Yahoo home page—and that’s just the beginning,” wrote Twitter co-founder Biz Stone in the company blog. “Twitter has proven to be compelling in a variety of ways. With @anywhere, Web site owners and operators will be able to offer visitors more value with less heavy lifting.”
Twitter hasn’t said when it expects to launch @Anywhere, but says it’ll have over a dozen major partners at launch, including Yahoo, the New York Times, YouTube, Amazon, Bing, Citysearch, Digg, eBay, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Salesforce.com, Meebo, and AdvertisingAge. Twitter did not offer any details of the financial arrangements with these launch partners.
