At AllThingsD's Dive Into Mobile conference today, Twitter VP of product Michael Sippey responded intriguingly to a question about his feelings on Facebook Home and whether Twitter would seek to get homescreen billing on a phone the same way that Facebook has. "There are a lot of things we're looking at on Android, and across all of our applications, to make it easier to discover tweets," Sippey responded. "I'd like to see tweets [on the home / lock screen], so we'll see how it goes."

"There are a lot of things we're looking at on Android..."

Earlier in the talk, Sippey had mentioned that his team guns for the same rapid iteration on mobile apps that Facebook has, shipping new releases on a regular basis — in other words, the Twitter app hasn't reached its final state, because it's perpetually evolving.

Clearly, there are probably users who would like to see tweets fly across their phones at the same level of importance that Facebook has given status updates with Facebook Home, but whether Twitter would actually re-skin Android the same way Facebook has to accomplish that — or, even more ambitiously, work with an OEM on a branded phone — is anyone's guess.
