Apparently, “The Google” wants to be cool…
That, I’d assume, is why they’re reportedly trying to acquire Twitter:
Here’s a heck of a rumor that we’ve sourced from two separate people close to the negotiations: Google is in late stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. We don’t know the price but can assume its well, well north of the $250 million valuation that they saw in their recent funding.
As a Twitter-er, I’d welcome Google. I remember what they did with Blogger. When I got on Blogger, it was just as Google was really starting to get itself wrapped up in Blogger and making it better. There were some growing pains along the way, but Google made Blogger into what it is today.
Soon enough, Google will own us all… and I wouldn’t necessarily call that a bad thing.
