Google may be aware they should've spent longer testing Buzz, but according to their VP of product management, it doesn't pose a threat to Twitter and Facebook. Instead, "it's filling a niche, which is not currently met in the market."

Bradley Horowitz from Google told eWeek that in addition to not wanting to replace Twitter or Facebook, they're also pretty chuffed with how many people have been using Buzz since the launch in early February. Apparently "tens of millions" people made over 9 million posts and comments on Buzz, with 200 posts a minute being made on their phones.

How many of those are from Google employees trying to keep the momentum going, though? [eWeek via TechRadar]
