Google has launched Twitter integration with Google Friend Connect. This means any site using Google Friend Connect can potentially gain a much greater audience through Twitter.

The integration allows users to sign in to Google Friend Connect with their Twitter account information. From there, they can tweet about new site membership, share discussions from comments with their Twitter followers, and invite Twitter followers to join their Friend Connect community. The following clip explains how the new integration can be useful:

Over 9 million sites are already using Google Friend Connect. Twitter integration could increase that number substantially, as more webmasters find good reason to use it.

Google’s announcement comes just on the heels of an announcement from rival Yahoo of integration with Facebook through Facebook Connect. Users will be able to connect with Facebook friends on Yahoo, view a feed of their friends’ activity on Yahoo, and share content.

Yahoo’s Facebook integration won’t go live until 2010. Google’s Friend Connect/Twitter integration is already live. Friend Connect also allows users to sign in with their Yahoo account information (and of course their Google account info).
