Google allegedly wants to buy Twitter

Twitter logoRumor has it that the giant tech company wants to buy the online social networking service. As a matter of fact, it would not be the first time that speculations like this come up.

Reports of Google wanting to buy the Twitter surfaced back in 2009 although both companies refused to make any comments on the matter. The fact that they did not actually deny the rumors was what surprised everybody, implying that there might have been some negotiations between the two.

One thing is certain, every time a rumor like this is launched, Twitter shares go up, and the company boosts up its value.

Furthermore, the news did not take anyone by surprise, as Twitter has known a continuous growth over the years, becoming a real-time search engine, on top of being a social platform. And it does not show any signs of stopping, having amassed more than 500 million users.

There were rumors that even Facebook wanted to acquire the company, with people saying that Facebook had even found a way to emulate the platform by introducing its status bar back in 2009.

This did not seem to work because most people still consider Twitter to be the more effective real-time information supplier.

The Telegraph reported that two companies are supposedly in for the bid to buy the social network, and that one of them is most likely Google. With Google Plus being not so efficient against Facebook and Twitter, it is only natural for Google to want to get its hands on one of its main rivals.

Since neither of the companies has released any statements so far, we can just wait and see if the deal materializes at last and if Twitter will become Google’s next acquisition. If that's the case, then Facebook will have some serious competition.
