There have been reports as to who might be interested in picking up the company’s business, and recently a report from the New York Post has revealed that Twitter might have thrown their hat into the ring, although it seems that it was a rather brief bout as the company apparently bowed out of the bidding process later on.

The talks were held several weeks ago where execs from both companies discussed the possibility of a merger, and both companies were said to be discussing whether or not their merger would make sense. According to the Post’s source, “Twitter is the destination for instant news, and Yahoo has a lot of eyeballs on its site. The idea isn’t as crazy as you might think.”
