There have been rumors of a potential takeover bid on Twitter, with shares in the company rising 3.5% to $52 each yesterday. Barron's reporting that there are two unnamed companies that have approached Twitter with "serious" interest in taking it over.




According to, Twitter has bought in advisers - with Goldman Sachs rumored to be talking with the social network giant - in order to "fend off a takeover offer". We don't know who would buy Twitter just yet, but Google would be a potential company and it could see them fight off Facebook in the social networking space much better than its own Google+ ever did.
