These are the top 5 companies that should buy Twitter.
Recently reports swirled that Twitter was up for sale.
Let's see who should buy it.
At number 5, it's Apple.
Apple is just sitting on tons of cash.
It could probably buy Twitter using proceeds of iPod Nano sales.
Yeah, that's still a thing.
Besides, Apple has tried its hand at social networking a few times, and they don't go anywhere with it.
So maybe a Twitter owned by Apple could be successful.
And number 4 is Amazon.
Amazon owns a lot of different properties.
Did you know that Amazon owns goodreads, IMDB, comics, and even Twitch?
Could you see how Twitter could easily fit within Amazon's world.
Plus, with Twitter's pushing to video, it could add some interesting live content to Amazon Prime video.
And number three, Snapchat.
Social network buying another social network.
Sure, why not?
Snapchat keeps finding new ways to engage its users.
Maybe it could figure out what Twitter should be or maybe just become a part of Snapchat.
And number 2, Facebook.
So take everything I said about Snapchat and apply it to Facebook.
In this situation, imagine Twitter existing the same way Instagram does.
The companies can remain separate, but I think Facebook could bring some real focus to Twitter.
And number 1 is Google.
Why on Earth should Google be the company that purchases Twitter?
It makes the most sense.
The company has struggled to make a real dent in the social space.
However, combining some features of Twitter into something like YouTube [INAUDIBLE] Might be really, really helpful.
Added to that, unlimited usage of Twitter's real-time data, plus Google search could lead to even better results.
What do you think?
Let me know on Twitter, assuming it's still a thing.
