Twitter is working on a Google Glass app

Twitter leak reveals

Google Glass is now available in the UK for 1000

MICROBLOGGING WEBSITE Twitter apparently is working on an app for the Google Glass augmented reality eyewear, a leak on its social network has revealed.

Eagle-eyed Twitlio developer Jonathan Gottfried noticed the apparent confirmation of a Twitter app for Google Glass, having seen someone tweeting a picture from the source "Twitter for Glass" . 

According to Allthingsd, this leak is likely to be the real deal. Why? Because Twitter restricts the creation of apps with "Twitter" in the name, so it's unlikely that someon has knocked up a fake application with the word "Twitter" in its name.

What's more, the tweet in question came from @MogroothMuddler, an account that has since been deleted. However, this Twitter account has been traced back to a man called Shiv Ramamurthi, who works as an engineering manager at Twitter. If anyone was going to get their mitts on an early release of Twitter's Google Glass application, it would be a Twitter engineer.

It's unlikely that we'll be seeing the release of Twitter for Google Glass any time soon, given that Google recently said that it is unlikely to release its spectacles until 2014.

However the leak does suggest that other software developers like Facebook and Instagram might be working on apps for Google's eyewear.

Twitter said that it was unable to comment. µ
