    I wonder how soon buyers will be lining up to buy twitter:rolleyes:, and for how much. Maybe in the end it will again be Google to buy it like it bought youtube.

    It wont be facebook as they only offered $100 million in cash... :)

    I think MSN owns facebook but not sure, so that only leaves google with the type off money twitter is looking for...

    ohhhh ok wow they hardly own it... i thought they had a much bigger stake in it then that :eek:

    Well its all i hear about on CNN and all major TV news, even politicians using it (during obamas stimulas talks ) and so on ...
    twitter this and twitter that.... its like this wild "gold rush" phenomenon

    Ill be honest its part of why im using it now as it got such a buzz that i couldnt resist not to try it!

    thx

    Maybe but don't forget Yahoo too. Yahoo needs something to make its comeback with a bang on the business arena.

    What is astonishing is how a buzz created about, lets face it, a bloging site, has made it so "cool" that people want to buy it. You can bet your bottom dollar whoever buys it will stuff it full of monetisation and turn it into a bier marketin spamfest than it already is!
