A Twitter Phone?

As Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) continues to work toward the widespread acceptance of Facebook Home, its meta app that integrates the Facebook experience into Android, you must wonder if a similar option from Twitter is imminent. The rollout of "Chat Heads" should continue to push the popularity of Facebook Home, and the small screen real estate that it creates for mobile advertising -- eventually, of course -- should continue to make it a popular idea with investors.

In the below video, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the potential represented by a Twitter social media smartphone if Twitter rolls out something similar to Facebook Home. Perhaps Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) will choose to partner with Twitter to fight the collective of Facebook and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) .

But there are things every investor needs to know about this company. We've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There's a lot more to Facebook than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today, and we'll tell you whether we think Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio.
