Google, or Facebook in talks to buy Twitter?
I've been reading up on the latest social media news - and apparently Google, or facebook is rumored to be in talks to buy Twitter.
What do you guys think about this? Do you think Twitter would be better off with Google, standing alone, or selling to Facebook?
According to sources quoted in a The Wall Street Journal story published late Wednesday night, Twitter has been having what the paper called "low-level" discussions about a possible acquisition by either Google or Facebook, at a valuation of $8 billion to $10 billion. Obviously the company's financial backers—which include VC firms such as Kleiner Perkins Caulfield Byers—are looking forward to a potential exit and a hefty return on their investment. And both Google and Facebook could probably make use of Twitter in some form or other. But would an acquisition by either Web giant be good for the messaging service, or its users?
