Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos goes Twitter

Twitter, the popular microblogging/messaging service, got a new round of funding today, with no other than Amazon Founder/CEO Jeff Bezos taking a personal state in it.

Quote:
Jeff Bezos is said to have displayed intense and varied scientific interests at an early age. Having worked on Wall Street as a computer scientist, built a network for international trade, founded Amazon.com, and launched the human space flight startup Blue Origin, Dr. Bezos (through Bezos Expeditions, his personal venture investment company) serves as more than an investor and advisor because he is also an inspiration to all of us at Twitter. Jeff's attention to business process details and distinctive, "honk-like laugh" are similarly admirable traits as far as we're concerned.

What do you think? Is this just a new round of funding for Twitter (rumored to be around $15m) and Jeff Bezos just happens to be in the mix, or is this something bigger, perhaps something where the Amazon Kindle comes into play?
