Facebook and Google Hold Takeover Talks With Twitter: Report

Search giant Google Inc (GOOG), Facebook Inc and others, have held low level takeover talks with Twitter that give the social networking and microblogging service a value as high as $10 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported. In December, when it got $200 million in new venture capital, Twitter, created in 2006, was valued at $3.7 billion. People familiar with the situation told the Journal that “the company believes it can grow into a $100 billion company.”

The paper also said the talks have so far gone nowhere and that Google, Facebook and Twitter all declined to comment.
