Google to buy Twitter?

With Salesforce.com, Twitter might turn its focus to customer service communications and mining its database of tweets for business intelligence.

Google would likely be most interested in the social and news dimensions of Twitter. Disney, by contrast, might see it as a way to expand the reach of its sports and entertainment programming.

Binding acquisition offers are due in the next two weeks, and Twitter has already whittled down the field of potential acquirers, the people said this week.

Salesforce.com Inc is in the running, while Google parent Alphabet Inc, and Walt Disney Co have also been contemplating bids, the people added.

It is not certain the process will result in a sale, the people cautioned. The sources asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential.
