Twitter is the Apple of their eye

Rumours abound in the silicon world that social networking phenomenon Twitter may very be bought out by futuristic mega-corp Apple (remember that Sumpsons episode where Homer moves to a new town a new job, only for his friendly boss to be a supervillain – that's how we see Apple).

Twitter has already been flirted with by both Facebook and Google, but now the electronics behemoth wants to get it's fingers in the Twitter pie, and make it an Apple pie. Sorry.

Anyway the guys at Electric Pig are as equally as baffled as to why they want in, seeing as the site hasn't proven it can make any money, and especially as it's going to cost a reported $700million to snap it up. Why does this seem like the first net bubble, pre burst?
