Twitter Co-Founder: “We’re Not For Sale”
May 6th, 2009 | by Adam Ostrow
Yesterday, we saw a spate of rumors about Twitter being acquired following a report from Gawker that said Apple and Twitter were in “serious negotiations” about a deal in the $700 million range.
Today, making an appearance on The View, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone told Barbara Walters flat out that “We are not for sale.”
Not to mention, the TwitterTwitter reviews guys clearly have a ton of conviction in what they’re doing. In spite of the fact the company is yet to reveal a business model, they do not appear to be tempted by the half dozen or so companies with the bankroll to make their small team very rich, very quickly. Further, their value is seemingly going up daily, as traffic has been growing at better than a 50 percent month-over-month clip lately.
