'Everyone' is buying Twitter

Seems everyone is interested in buying Twitter, according to rumors flying around Silicon Valley today. The whisperings have managed to push the social network's share price up 21 per cent to $22.26.

Overall, the permanent loss-making San Francisco upstart's stock price is down 30 per cent over the past year.

Now Salesforce is allegedly sniffing around and mulling buying the troubled micro-blogging system, as well as Google, apparently. Even Microsoft and Verizon are being mentioned.

The asking price could be between $18bn and $30bn. ®
