Google to Buy Twitter?

TECHCRUNCH.COM - Google is rumored to be attempting to purchase the wildly popular micro-blogging service, Twitter.

Almost three years has passed since Google, the largest website in the world, acquired Youtube.

Now, they are searching for new ventures.  TechCruch.com is reporting that they have been talking to the owners of Twitter.com, a micro-blogging service that has grown extremely popular over the past two years.

This comes directly after a recent attempt social media website FaceBook’s attempt to acquire the company.  They offered roughly $500 million in both cash and stock to the small startup.

The reason for the talks with Google is Twitter’s new search engine, which is reportedly edging out Google's search technology.

If the sale goes through, this would be Twitter Founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone’s second sale to Google; they sold Blogger.com to Google five years ago.

These talks are far from final though, as another big player in the search business, Microsoft, has yet to come into play in the deal.

Twitter commented saying that they plan on being a strong independent company and have no plans on being acquired any time soon. They also commented that Google may have problems involving Anti-Trust laws should Twitter be acquired.

Google needs to be split up soon, it's too big. Bad for business.
