Facebook, Twitter and D.T. (T-Mobile) buy 1-letters

Recent publishing of whois records after the .ie 1 and 2 letter domains release in Ireland show that 3 internet and communications giants - Facebook, Twitter and Deutsche Telekom (the owner of T-Mobile) have registered 1-character short domains.

In case of Twitter the domains might be used similar to already owned t.co . What could be the plans of the other companies? Will Facebook use it for some new internet service?
And how might this buys affect the short domains market?

Neat, 1 letter domains are gaining exposure towards the huge chinese traffic. And I underestimated the power of 1 letter domain names at first. Seems to be quite relevant to even make those social media titans register with only one letter. I think they have an ongoing business plan for those domain names, instead of hoarding them to cripple that market. They are very well known for their outgoing entrepeneurism.
 
I suppose the value might grow jet since especially the shortest format domains - C.LL - still are limited to countries so their number is very low, between 1500-2800 globally , I would say 1800 on my calculations are really market released.
