It seems that the great technology companies decided to bet instead on social networks. Microsoft came out to the street and bought the professional social network LinkedIn for 26 billion dollars, with the financial advisors of Google to push the company to buy Twitter as this social network is about to see its highly valued price.
“It’s hard to see Twitter as an independent company in the long run,” said Peter Garnry analyst at Saxo Bank. The acquisition would be made by Alphabet. One reason for the acquisition of Twitter was that the platform would help boost Google Plus.
The social network LinkedIn, headquartered in the California city of Mountain View, has over 430 million members. “Twitter is the next target and this may be just the beginning of a new technology boom,” said Naeem Aslam, an analyst chief market of Think Forex. Remember that the platform is losing advertisers to Instagram. Rumours that Google may acquire Twitter are no longer new, but now may be even closer to being realised.
Even before the opening of trading on the stock exchange on Wall Street on Monday (13), the purchase had already been announced, causing titles Linkedin should go up 63.3% to US $ 194.30, while the Microsoft fell 3.2% to US $ 49.85. Rumours now point to another, Google giant can become the owner of Twitter. “We are betting that this acquisition will occur before the end of the year.”
The social network LinkedIn, headquartered in the California city of Mountain View, has over 430 million members. The deal is also positive on Twitter. The expectation of financial analysts, like Peter Garnry, Saxo Bank, is the company to make the purchase of the microblogging platform by the end of 2016. For now neither Twitter nor Google have expressed about the possible negotiation. Remember, however, that social networking is losing advertisers to Instagram and there is already evidence that Twitter may be heading for his last years of life.
