There has been speculation of Twitter buy out talks with Google and Facebook. Figures as high as $10 Billion (£6.23 bn) have been said to come up.
Considering that in December the microblogging site was valued at just $3.7 Billion after reporting some $200 million in profits, are they offering too much?
However they have just set two phenomenal records for the most Tweets per second. In Japan an astounding 6,939 tweets was recorded just after midnight and the most Tweets during a sporting event was set during the last minutes of the Super Bowl this year at 4,064.
Assuming the site still has a few more years left until it becomes as redundant and slow as MySpace there is still time for it to expand. However if I were in charge I’d take the $10 bn! Social Network fads don’t last too long!
