Google Rumored to Buyout and Take Ownership of Twitter

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.
