With so many mediums of social media and the ability to share updates, sometimes what was popular in the past might not be popular in the future. Good examples of social media platforms that kind of died out include the likes of Friendster and MySpace. However the question is, could Twitter be next?
Twitter is still heavily used by many users, but it definitely isn’t quite what it used to be back in the day, and apparently this has caught the attention of some companies. In a report from CNBC, it seems that Twitter could soon be receiving formal bids to acquire the company from the likes of Google and Salesforce.com, and this is just amongst several tech companies who have expressed their interest as well.
Of course a formal bid doesn’t necessarily mean that Twitter will accept or sell itself as they will need to see if the price is right. This isn’t the first time that we have heard rumors that Twitter could be bought up by other companies. Back in early 2015, Google’s interest in Twitter made the headlines, although at that time it seemed that Twitter was trying to resist Google’s attempts.
We’re not sure if this has changed in 2016, but no doubt if Google’s acquisition of Twitter were to be successful, it could afford Google another shot at the social networking scene following their somewhat unsuccessful attempts with Google+.
