, and we wonder if
Apple is really interested in buying a stake in Twitter
Apple's social status
Should Apple get into the social network game (via Twitter or otherwise)?
The New York Times came out with a report over the weekend describing talks between Apple and the 140-character proselytizer. The report alleged that Apple has considered buying a minority stake in Twitter, a company that hasn't yet filed an IPO. The Wall Street Journal chimed in
to say the talks were more than a year ago, and its sources insist there are none ongoing.
Why would Apple consider investing in a pre-existing social network? Does Apple need to get entangled in the social media world? We discuss those questions, and put them to the tech-obsessed folks in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood. Let us know what you think about Apple's social status in the comments.
