Even as a teenager I hate social networking, however this would seem like a short term, but possibly profitable deal. Who knows? Maybe Apple could improve twitter so that it could last longer.

Short term though. Something else come along and take over. Facebook is on way out with the youth and twitter is in with them. Find the next new thing.

I don't want them to, and if I owned the company I'd say no because people don't really want everything controlled by 1 thing. We have already had that problem to some extent with the government.

i dont see why not. they havent hit their decline yet, and purchasing twitter would mean close integration with apple products. of course, the two sides have to meet at the right price.

Twitter doesn't fit with Apple's core competencies. I would need to see the strategic plan to decide, but at this point I would say no because it doesn't relate to their strengths as a company. Unless they were planning to diversify, but even then I don't see how it helps Apple long-term.

We already have the intense being bought out by tech giants left and right. Pinterest, YouTube, etc.
Can we please have at least SOME companies let be?
Where are the trustbusters when we need them?

No, I don't really see the point. Apple's got plenty of money and merchandise I take care of, I don't see why they'd want Twitter.

If they do, it won't be to make a profit, it will be to either make twitter integration proprietary to apple products or to make Google's android pay big bucks of they want any twitter application or integration on their platform.
I don't think it'd be worth it as twitter is at its peak.

If I were in charge of Apple, I'd buy Twitter. I honestly don't know much about business, but it seems like a potentially good move. As a regular consumer, do I want Apple to buy Twitter? Hecks no!

Facebook is not a fad, but their recent business moves run the risk of making themselves are irrelevant as MySpace.

I don't think it's a fad - FB at least has been around since 2005. There's money to be made with twitter also.

Alot of you call twitter n Facebook fads. Saying they won't be around after a few years. Do you realize they have been around for several years already!fads come n go quickly having no staying power. Twitter n fb have it though I'm not sure why!

Even after the stock dividends, Apple will probably have well over $75 Billion in cash...
Apple integrated Twitter in the last version of iOS... Could it be the start of world domination?
Too bad they didn't gobble up Facebook before it went public.

Mainstream taste change so overall it's best to shy away from the social media market.
07/29/12 12:04 pm
For now it's a good investment but I'd sell that right away before the value of that social media drops in the future because of other up and coming social mediums.

Stick with what you know--making really cool products that define the industry. I'm still waiting for people to get tired of Twitter and Facebook and move on to something else.

If I was owner, then yes. Personally I don't like all these mergers. Facebook changed Instagram and I don't like that at all. There was no need for change!

If I owned apple, then yes I would pursue the purchase. However, as a user of twitter and a customer of apple, I would not be happy with the merge. I'm sure apple would charge a fee and give some company exclusivity rights if they owned twitter :0(.
