Google and Twitter team up for election coverage, but what about Jaiku?

Google and Twitter have teamed up to create a Super Twitter Tuesday Google Map, a useful enough mashup which shows election-related Twitter messages by location. More exciting? Google bought Jaiku, Twitter's main competitor, last fall.

What this tells us: Jaiku, which has a much smaller and more European user base than Twitter, isn't really doing it for Google. Could Twitter founder Evan Williams, who already sold his first startup, Blogger, to Google, get a second payday? That would be one way to solve Twitter's problem with finding a way to make money.
