TWTR is dirt cheap here and Google needs TWTR to take on Facebook
$25 bill at the moment, so $30 bil minimum for a platform GOOG could replicate in a week and then load every one of their millions of gmail accounts into their new version of twitter
or, pay $30 billion to have a fractional sized version of what they could build for free
And all of TWTR's customers will drop tweeting and shift to Google. Next Google will replace Facebook in 2 days.
Goog needs twitter to keep google search engine relevant in realtime search.
And most likely they won't
You sound like the idiots on the YHOO board when Yahoo spurned the MSFT offer and people were thinking AAPL would but YHOO instead
Maybe .....or Maybe TWTR makes a penny... both seam very impossible
Sentiment: Strong Sell
