Facebook will Twitter. Und Google will auch. Also vielleicht. Vielleicht aber bietet auch Microsoft mit. Könnte man sich vorstellen. Der Basar jedenfalls scheint eröffnet. Eine Netzschau

“Der Mikroblogging-Dienst Twitter wird in Gesprächen mit Kaufinteressenten laut einem Zeitungsbericht mit bis zu 10 Milliarden US-Dollar bewertet. Unter anderem Facebook und Google hätten bei Twitter zumindest vorgefühlt, berichtete das Wall Street Journal am Donnerstag. Die Gespräche seien jedoch bisher ergebnislos geblieben.“ heise

“Twitter is a private company and does not disclose its revenues. Last year it is estimated to have had revenues of $45m but ended the year making a loss as the firm spent money on hiring staff and new data centres. This year Twitter's revenues are expected to more than double to between $100-110m.” Guardian

“It's the cultures of these different companies that I'm most concerned about. Twitter, at least the parts of it I interact with, consists of a fiercely independent group of users who mostly want Twitter Inc. to stay out of the way. They do, too. Twitter's leadership uses the service lightly and as long as they don't screw it up by pushing dreams of a new media empire, with all the consumption and brand dreck that comes with, things on Twitter are going to be just fine for the users.

Facebook couldn't be more different, though. It's all about having your hand held. The site is steeped with algorithms and recommendations at the center of the user experience. There's complex settings and options, less spam and less lawlessness.“ ReadWriteWeb

“We actually don't think a Twitter-Facebook deal is even plausible at this point. We think there would be a protracted anti-trust investigation prodded along by Microsoft and Google, and we don't think Facebook could come up with enough cash to make the deal work. We also think that, if Facebook were to get close to buying Twitter, Google would pay whatever it took to steal Twitter away.” Businessinsider

Einen weiteren Blumenstrauß an Meinungen gibt es beim Guardian.

Randnotiz 1: Der nerdige Tweet gewinnt.

Randnotiz 2: Auf ffffound gibt es Bilder. Z.B. das von oben.

Randnotiz 3: Die Strokes musizieren wieder.

Die letzte Netzschau findet sich hier.
