In addition to this, reports said that iOS 5 from Apple announced that it would include Twitter integration, which brought as the Twitter’s biggest product, after broadcasting that Twitter would be on its service of native photo and video sharing on June 1.

“[Twitter] will soon be the social layer of iOS, enabling users to turn individual actions such as snapping a photo or reading an article into instant social activities,” Mashable writer Jennifer Van Grove was quoted as saying earlier.

Apparently, reports said that it would bring a big blow with the social graph of the web- Facebook as Twitter recently bought TweetDeck, its most popular third-party client.

It was also said that the tie-up with iOS would bring advantage to Twitter because iOS will prioritize Twitter over Facebook with lots of millions of users.

Nevertheless, it is currently being believed that Twitter‘s growing ambition as a social network was indicated by winning iOS, by which it may have presented a victory over Facebook.
