As many of you know, Twitter is up for grabs, and ever since we first heard that it is now planning to be sold out, we had press releases and hoaxes and interviews of companies planning to acquire it. But well, they all went absolutely nowhere!
The very first names of the probable buyers were Google and Disney, and both of them had now walked over, and neither is Apple nor Google is in the picture because this acquisition would make any sense for an increasingly enterprise-focused company. And all those who thought it would go under Verizon, bullshit! They had no plans of putting up a bid at the first place.
And even it’s biggest rival, Facebook isn’t interested in taking Twitter under it’s control at the moment. So, what we can say at the moment, NO ONE IS INTERESTED IN BUYING TWITTER (as of now, I must add!) The reason why Twitter decided to put itself for grabs because they’d started loosing user growth, and have had a rough time, probably the reason why any other giant would put itself on sale. First the user growth halted, and then it started decreasing, which in my opinion, is pathetic as hell, because Twitter never lost it’s glory.
Twitter will update investors on its earnings again two weeks from now, on October 27th, and it’s likely the company will either address or be asked about where acquisition talks go from here.
