With the power of (annoyingly?) revamped DMs compelling them, Twitter is ready to make some big changes. These rumored shakeups, however, have nothing to do with sabotaging character limits and a much-needed edit option. Instead, Twitter is reportedly in discussions with Google and others about a possible takeover.
Sources told CNBC that Twitter has received “expressions of interest” from multiple technology and/or media companies, with a formal bid possibly arriving by the end of the year. Google and Salesforce are said to be among the potential suitors, sources claimed. Following reports of a nearing sale, Twitter’s shares rose a whopping 21 percent early Friday.
