It looks like you can place your bets on twitter being sold in 2009 from Bet Online.com. Companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft are all mulling over a bid for Twitter.

What entity will acquire Twitter.com in 2009?
Google – even money
Facebook 5 to 1
Microsoft 10 to 1
Yahoo 20 to 1
Field 5 to 1
No 2009 acquisition 2.5 to 1
Odds will change as bets are placed.I think google will win out in this deal.How about you?

    Google will dominate this bid. But I do hope someone can take over this one.

    The plan from the very beginning was likely to sell this service. The no business model, vague premise and massive amounts of funding/buzz are all clear indicators. I'm betting Google takes this though.

    I think it is truth that google will win out in this deal as no one has such power to take over google!

    I bet it'll be google. Google has way to much money and they simply have nothing to spend it on. The finance pointless projects and buy everything they can all the time. I'm sure they'll be the first ones to pay for twitter.

    The problem is that Twitter thinks it is worth way more money than it really is worth. They have already turned down offers for the site.
    The days of companies paying for no revenue (eg Picasa, early days of Youtube) are over. The only money on the table is multiples of forward revenue offers, and with almost no forward revenue projections, it is only value to someone who can use it for existing operations.
    Forget Facebook, they are preparing for an IPO and don't want to pay cash for a money-sucking operation. They need cash for the balance sheet.
    Both Google and Microsoft have more money than God but does this product make sense for them?
    Microsoft has serious problems with their online effort and may give it up to Yahoo (MSN that is) in return for an advertising pact. Which means they won't want it. Google may be the only game in town and they may indeed know that and told them to come back when they have a business model that makes money. Google has publicly stated that they cannot see ad making opportunities in the Twitter cloud at the moment. So it is up to twitter to prove they have a business.
    If I was twitter, I would have taken the first reasonable offer than came along and make it someone elses problem.

    no one can win only google wins, google is a king of all.

    In this frame there surely would be only one bidder .... Google.

    Thanks for dropping by Diva.All the drama over at Entrecard is just to much.I hope you get good use from the credits I sent you.

    It looks as if most agree that if Twitter sells it will Google as the new owner.

    @GregR you are right that Twitter thinks it is worth way more money than it really is worth. They have already turned down offers for the site.

    Google is very strong contender for this , but one can be surprised by yahoo or facebook as well.

  12. business cards April 26, 2009 at 10:59 AM  

    I believe Google will acquire Twitter. Google is the number one company that acquires almost all good things in the Internet.

  13. Tkaniny Obiciowe April 28, 2009 at 5:52 AM  

    I'm 100% sure it's going to be google. They buy everything these days.

    I actually am looking for good explanations or resources to help demystify "What Twitter Is" and "Why People Should Care" and/or why it could be useful. I recently wrote an article confronting this question - interested in validation and others thoughts/experiences!

  15. nick May 3, 2009 at 5:05 PM  

    google probably will buy twitter. i really hope not though. they own too much of the internet already.

  16. Bingo Live May 25, 2009 at 4:11 AM  

    I am also agree with other commentators. They are saying right. Google is top at this time.

  17. catering supplies May 25, 2009 at 4:28 AM  

    Google had such power. It will win this race no one has power to take over Google.

  18. Veneers Melbourne May 26, 2009 at 11:16 PM  

    Google is unique one, no one can win with it.

    My bet is that Google will buy Twitter later this year. They already purchased Blogger from this guy so why not Twitter as well!
