Would Google pay more than $1 billion for Twitter? No idea. But there’s no way Microsoft lets a deal be negotiated without putting its bid in, too. And if these two giants see Twitter as the future of search, $1 billion is peanuts.
It seems to me that “user driven” search (search by recommendation) is definitely the future, but is Twitter the best option? Maybe so, for now. Twitter’s still relatively “authentic”, although that’s changing daily.
I understand Twitter’s posturing to get a high bid by saying they want to “build a profitable, independent company“, but let’s get real. You can only be the “latest-and-greatest-next-big-thing” for so long. Then something later, greater, bigger, and nexter will replace your buzz.
If I’ve got a stake in Twitter, I’m spending this weekend looking for medium sized tropical islands I can buy while real estate prices are low.
