Sources close to both companies have confirmed that Google is in negotiations to buy Twitter.
Wow, that's huge. What's Microsoft going to do then?
Why is this such a big deal for microsoft other than them wanting to own everything? It's not like microsoft really has something to that would compete with twitter.
I think you answered your own question.
I can see how this would be really wise, having this along with Blogger is a great move. I hope they get integrated properly.
Aren't the guys that made twitter the same guys that made blogger? They must be super fxcking rich.
Microsoft will now buy Facebook, which is like Twitter ...
And google will now take over the world
they buy everything while they lay off more people
They really can't do much up against Google,which is fantastic.
Cookigaki cares not who owns twitter as long as it doesn't change
Am I the only one that finds twitter to be kinda annoying?
Yeah i do to i think Facebook is beeter as a communication place but still a excelent move to google now i just want push mail from google!
Anyone else notice how Google are now the dominant force in the Computer software industry?
What impresses me is that Google is so humongous but they don't have the "evil" reputation that most other big companies do.
Because I don't have to buy an expensive 'Google OS' in order to make my computer work and run things.
Google is just as evil if not more evil than most corporations, google bent over backwards for the Chinese goverment letting them censor the internet and ive heard reports of google giving the chinese goverment info on some of the Chinese interenet users that the state tries to censor.Those people are then imprisoned or executed. If this aint evil what is.

If this aint evil what is." If Google does business internationally, why would they show signs of insubordination to their hosts? Why would they violate rules of compliance? Why would they break the law to protect outlaws? Do you even have links to prove Google is somehow guilty of the execution of innocent people? I love how Microsoft cheerleaders are willing to go through lengths to damage all of Microsoft's perceived "enemies".
They're just the stepford wives overly perfect kind of evil.
Is there anything else you need to buy google perhaps microsoft, Geese they are taking over the net.
If Google bought Microsoft, would everyone still hate Microsoft?
Best question I've heard all day.
The fact that people don't see the massive monopoly that google is creating is real real sad, like come on people! They are going to be just as bad as MS
I think people see it, they just don't care because Google doesn't seem all that bad.
Depends if they still charge me for an OS and Powerpoint and decide to be the only company charging for online gaming on platforms.
of course they will, also google are evil
Pointless people, posting pointless crap about EVERY second of their lives, and thinking enough people actually CARE to hear about it all! Everywhere I turn it's "Twitter this, tweet that". STFU, you stupid TWATS! This cartoon is a good representation of how ridiculous it is:
Uht Ohhh LMAO! xD
Once they start charging for everything and making 2nd rate software that crashes day one anyway...
Webmaster will never hate on google because it's the company that drive them traffic and therefore the site income, google could buy the site owner's mother and he will not complain, as long as google keep making money to webmasters, no one will point out google dominance.
I'm a bit frightened now at how big Google is getting. It's a vibe that's even scarier than Microsoft and Sony put together with every asset like PCs, HDTVs, Cameras, Phones, Mouses, OS, Software, and even MP3 Players as well. Something about Google getting bigger frightens me even more. I guess the fact that Google is a huge proponent of Cloud Computing explains that. I don't like my information being at the mercy of giant corporations and Google is in the best position to destroy "net neutrality" -something most N4G'ers and the Internet as a whole takes for granted.
it's scary because they have the majority of the market in a market that won't go away for a long time (the internet), and they keep increasing their share of that market.
They buy all of the websites that steal there googley thunder. First youtube now Twitter, hopefully they make it a much better website with all the $$$ they have.
Theyre coming out with their OS Android. Heard its supposed to be really interesting. Hope to see something interesting with that.
The T-Mobile G1, and a Vodafone exclusive one is coming out soon running it too.
Microsoft owns a bit of Facebook already, I think its about 5%. If Google buy Twitter then I'm guessing Microsoft will either bid for Twitter or buy a bigger share of Facebook.
