Weekly Wrap-up: Google’s Social Network, Twitter’s Birth, Why Group Messaging? and More…

This week’s top story was Marshall Kirkpatrick’s revelation that Google has plans to launch a new social network. Does it exist? Does it not exist? Google tried to shoot down the story (which is what companies with sekret projects usually do) but Marshall’s analysis and reportage paint a fairly comprehensive picture of what that service might be. Scoop! Denial! Repeat! Oh tech blogging, I wish I knew how to quit you.

After the jump you’ll find more of this week’s top news stories on some of the key trends that are shaping the Web – mobile, location, app stores – plus highlights from our six channels. Read on for more.
