Google Buzz, Twitter's Funeral Procession?

So I have started using google buzz, the new social service from google, and I have to say, I like it a lot. I first found out about it when google maps updated on my Android OS phone, and mentioned the me “Google Buzz” Feature. So while I was out for sushi last night I posted a comment about how great the sushi is. Now at first I had no clue what was going to happen, but when I woke up this morning I found several messages regarding my post. Now how this is an improvement over twitter is two fold:

First – I can set a comment for a location, it then is visible on google maps, for anyone to see, on google maps via their cell phone, or via google.com/buzz

Second – This is Powered by Google. I highly doubt they are going to have the “fail whale”-itis… and it integrates with all my other google services, awesomeness.

I think I hear the fat lady warming up in the background for twitter…

So what is your take on google buzz? Is it going to be the Twitter Killer? Post Comments below.
