Is Gruber Breaking News?

John Gruber on Daring Fireball, responding to an MG Siegler post reporting Twitter photo sharing being baked into the forthcoming iOS5:

"So close to the bigger story, but yet so far. Imagine what else the system could provide if your Twitter account was a system-level service."

John Gruber is well-sourced, occasionally breaking news of imminent Apple product releases as the event is about to unfold. Will Apple announce full Twitter integration in iOS5? Such integration could fully replace carrier-based texting with a rich client capable of texting, sharing, following and the like. And no per-text charges.
