Google in talks to buy Twitter

Google are reported to be in negotiations to buy Twitter. TechCrunch reports that negotiations between the internet giant and the popular micro-blogging site are at an early stage.

No details on the value of the potential deal have been released, but Google looks like it will have to pay well over the recent $250m valuation of the rapidly growing Twitter.

Facebook offered half a billion to buy Twitter just a couple of months ago, but founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone turned down the offer and could now be set to cash in their chips with an even bigger windfall.
