Google, Salesforce said to be among companies interested in buying Twitter

The shortlist of companies interested in a possible purchase include Google and Salesforce.com, along with several other unnamed technology companies. The first is a familiar one to those who have followed Twitter, Google.

If Microsoft owned both LinkedIn and Twitter, it could become a digital-communications and data company as much as a software and cloud-services vendor.

Though Twitter might not seem like a natural fit with any of the rumored suitors, he said companies could try to integrate it into existing platforms.

Twitter and its board reportedly discussed cost cuts and a potential sale during a big board meeting on September 8th, though the company didn't have any bids at the time.

Former Israel President Peres' condition deteriorates
The former hawk turned dove is widely respected both in Israel and overseas , regularly meeting world leaders and celebrities. He was sedated and breathing with a respirator in the intensive care unit. "His health position is very, very hard ".

Twitter and Google did not immediately respond to CNET's request for comment. As a result, Twitter's stocks have soared as high as 23 percent based on the news.

"Why @Twitter? 1 Personal learning network; 2 the best realtime, context rich news; 3 democratize intelligence; 4 great place to promote others", the tweet said. However, the last we heard, Twitter had been asking for nearly $18 Billion, - Putting off a lot of prospective buyers, who couldn't quite relate between the price and all the problems plaguing Twitter at present.

Attempts to make changes to its interface that might facilitate this have met with fierce resistance from users. If Twitter will in fact be sold to Google, the deal is expected to surmount even the 19-billion-dollar sale of WhatsApp to Facebook.

Twitter has added 9 million monthly users, 1 million of those in the United States, since co-founder Jack Dorsey was brought back in July 2015 as chief executive to save the almost decade-old company, reports The Wall Street Journal. As of this writing, Twitter is trading at $22.67 per pop, an increase of 21.66% from the day's start.
