(Newser) – The blogosphere is, ahem, atwitter over Britney Spears’ new Web site and micro-blogging account. The pop star promises to provide fans the inside scoop via britneyspears.com and Twitter, a social-networking site allows users to post constant updates. “I’d like to welcome Britney Spears to our world,” writes Michael Arrington at TechCrunch.

Arrington believes the move promises “solid gold” for host Twitter, if not necessarily the pop star. So far, Brit’s blog doesn’t feature any music or original content from her other than video. “She should embed some music from Imeem or iLike and get paid for all those streams,” he writes. “Maybe a few less of the site visitors would use BitTorrent for all their music needs.”
