Around the Net

Google, Apple, Microsoft, News Corp, All Eyeing Twitter

Google, Apple, Microsoft and News Corp. are all poking their noses around Twitter, reports Kara Swisher. "Because this is America, a bid for Twitter could come at any time and in any amount." But Twitter's co-founders don't want to sell, she says. "There is a sense when you talk to its founders and investors that they truly believe they are onto some very important interactive communications paradigm shift in the Internet arena with their start-up."

Twitter's co-founders may not seem like they want to sell, but if Google, Apple, Microsoft or News Corp. were to table a hefty $700 million offer, Swisher says "an epic free-for-all wrestling match to the death would break out among all of them, most especially Google and Microsoft. Sounds like fun to us!
