Disney Might Buy Twitter
Published Sep 26, 2016It's full of evil villains, princesses and maybe one or two heroes, so it only makes sense that Twitter would eventually join the Marvel universe and the Star Wars franchise in the Disney family. According to reports, that might eventually be the case as the mouse house is considering a bid for the flailing social media service.
According to a Bloomberg report, insider sources have revealed that Disney is working with a financial advisor to crunch the numbers and consider a bid for Twitter.
While sources from neither Twitter nor Disney responded to comment, the move would make sense considering Twitter's recent foray into video streaming content. Further, the two brands are already familiar with one another as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is on the board at Disney.
If this goes through, we'd be eager to see the crossover potential between the two companies. For example, maybe they'd make a Twitter-themed Disneyland ride called "Trolls of the Caribbean."
