So we’ve heard this story at least 3 times before right? Google to buy Twitter. And of course it’s never happened. But the rumours circulating right now are that it’s finally on, like Donkey Kong (whatever that means).
Anyway, you may have noticed that the share price for Twitter has seen a c.4% spike of late. Apparently this is mainly attributable to the fact that they have hired Goldman Sachs to defend any bid from Google. A rather strong indicator that this time, it’s serious. And to add more fuel to the proverbial fire, when both companies were asked for a statement on the mounting speculation of a deal, they both declined to comment. Which basically means it must be true.
