    I don't know if it's true but I do hope not. I don't really like Google and I personally think they are already to big.

    I think Twitter would be worth far more. I had heard that the latest VC round had Twitter priced at between $1 billion and $1.5 billion. I am pretty sure they would still demand more than $250 million in a sale. But it is interesting nonetheless.

    In a few years Google might become nonexistent. Who knows, it might collapse under its own shell.

    Considering Google is still bleeding money on YouTube, I dare them to buy Twitter.

    Twitter is growing so fast, faster that they expected I think. Google is taking advantage of this opportunity. Well, I think it's a great opportunity for Twitter and a good buy for Google if this pushes through.

    Google also have a history of buying up successful smaller sites, paying $1.65 billion for video sharing forum YouTube in 2006, although the company recently admitted it has struggled to turn a profit from the site.

    I think Twitter isn't making any revenue, but its much popular these days...

    Twitter is an amazing idea, so simple and elegant. It's definitely worth a sum of money. I find Twitter slow during peak hours though...
