• Google to Twit?

    Man, the merger rumors are out in full force.

    The New York Times reports that IBM is poised to pay $7 billion for Sun.

    And TechCrunch says they have reports from two independent sources that Google is close to buying Twitter.

    Must be something in the water.

    UPDATE: Kara Swisher at All Things Digital says, “In fact, Twitter and Google (GOOG) have simply been engaged in “some product-related discussions,” according to one source, around real-time search and the search giant better crawling the microblogging service.”

    So why does the rumor get such traction? Because Google buying Twitter makes a whole lotta sense, for both sides.
