    I read online that Steve Jobs is secretly alive and is actually still pulling the strings at Apple. Doesn't make it any more true.

    I don't think Twitter is so poor so they going to sell their assent to Google.

    And if they did how long Google + alive?

    I've thought about buying Twitter. Doesn't mean it's going to happen though.

    Twitter's market cap is $33 billion right now. For investors to go through with it, Google would have to pay at least $40 billion for it. Google is not going to spend 2/3 of its cash (especially considering most of it is overseas and can't be brought into the US without paying taxes) for Twitter. I can't see it happening.

    Back in January when this news was circulating, precisely this point was the argument against the likelihood of the purchase happening. I doubt whether much has changed since then.

    The biggest question is why? What would they do with Twitter that Twitter isn't already doing? I don't think Google has any idea what to do with a social network...

    Google+ to me became Google-

    Social networks will eventually cause mental instability and even more psychosis by internet overload.

    I don't see any activity on Google+ much at all. It's the non-social social network.

    I've only tried it once and really didn't like it, no one really seems to use it out of my family and friends anyway.
    Google+ does have some good concepts, such as the Circles. But, Facebook was already the automatic go to for social networking. It came too late, after a heavyweight was already firmly established. (Hey, where have we seen that before? )

    Google is awful to me and I'd hate it if this is true because I actively use twitter and I make it my business to use nothing of Google except YouTube and even then I limit myself.
