Is Google Trying to Takeover Twitter?

There are rumors abound that Twitter may be in Google’s watchlist for a takeover.

There have been claims for some time that Google may be eyeing Twitter to counter Facebook’s growing presence in both the social and “search” domain.

The search giant already has a social counterpart to Facebook but it hasn’t been as popular.

There is no confirmation from Google or Twitter, but there are many industry critics who claim that the search giant may be serious this time.

Twitter may be one of the leading social networking sites (although technically referred to as a micro-blogging site), it has yet to reach the break-even point.

It has regularly been in the middle of takeover rumors during the last few years. This time it is claimed that Google is making an even harder attempt for a takeover.

Twitter has however benefited from the latest series of rumors about its takeover. Its share increased by more than 4% on the day the WebSphere started populating with the new information.

Briefing.com recently came out with its claims that Goldman Sachs was working behind the curtains to help Twitter ward off attempts of takeover. If the market analysis agency is to be believed, two companies have been working to takeover the micro-blogging site. It has named the first company to be Google.

A few years ago both Google and Facebook made buyout attempts for Twitter.

The social site was successful in turning down the offers, with the objective to compete against both for advertising revenue and users. Then, there were rumors that Apple was working on a buyout to make its debut into the arena of social networking.

In its recent information release, Briefing.com hasn’t said anything about the second company alongside Google that could have been attempting a takeover.

  2. Hi Nisha

    This is a great news. You know this is a great way for Twitter to get attention. Lets fold our hands and see if this takeover will come to pass or not.

  3. Hi Nisha Maam,
    it is good for Google and news is also good Thanks for sharing this information us keep up it
    Have a nice week ahead,

  4. Hello Maam,
    this is a very interesting topic.
    I have read a article a day before and there the author mantion that personalised twitter cards may effects the search unlike the google+ search result does.
    For me twitter is far more important and better for my global engagement. But I couldn’t find this feature on Google+ . I tried so hard to figure out why I am not getting engagement via google+ then I realised that it actually works in a different way.
    You can’t play it unlike you did with facebook or twitter. For bloggers the possibilities of getting high glimps via google+ is very higher than fb or twitter. But the approach is completely opposite.
    Well, I learn some new thing from this article. Thanks for sharing this.
    Regards

    Hi Piyush,

    Yes, the dynamics are quite different between how Google+ works and how twitter or facebook works. All have different models and need different approach.
    Good to know you learnt something valuable from my post.

    Cheers!

    Hi Ikechi,

    Yes, Twitter is in fact benefiting a lot from this news. Its stocks have taken a way up.
    But it will take a lot more for this deal to come through, and if it does, it will be something big.

    Have a great day!
