shotsWith selfies being the rage these days, we can’t say we’re surprised that developers are trying to cash in on the opportunity by creating apps with a selfie-focus. Shots is such an app, and it is also an app that has seen tremendous growth. As it stands, it has a user base of more than 3 million and about two-thirds are women under 24.

This is apparently the reason as to why Twitter could be thinking about picking up the app for themselves. This is according to a report from CNBC who claims that a source has told them that Twitter and Shots are currently in talks about a possible acquisition. Twitter’s CFO also seems to have accidentally tweeted a message about it which was meant to be a direct message, thus “confirming” that talks are indeed taking place.

This was similarly speculated by Re/code who tried to guess at who Twitter’s CFO was talking about, with Shots being listed as a possible candidate. Another reason why Shots is so popular is because pop star Justin Bieber is an investor in the app and has put about $1.1 million of his own money into the app last year.

However as it stands, this is only a rumor and we have no way of confirming if any of this is real. Twitter has since released a statement claiming that they don’t comment on rumors and speculation, but either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information.
