Cheshire, United Kingdom (18 February, 2011) –, a leading search engine marketing company based in the United Kingdom, comment on the future of social media platform Twitter, after Facebook and Google were rumoured to be considering a bid for the micro-blogging giant.

Media outlets have recently reported that both Google and Facebook are weighing up a move to purchase Twitter, which is commanding valuations of $10billion – a large leap from 2010, when Twitter was valued at $3.7billion. However, at the recent conference Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Twitter chief executive Dick Costolo addressed the speculation, confirming them as ‘rumours’. He also gave an insight into why Twitter is currently valued so highly:

“At the end of this year’s Superbowl we saw 4,000 tweets per second. During the game there were sustained periods when it was 3,000 tweets per second. Just to give you some contrast, during the 2008 Superbowl we served 28 tweets per second.”

“The increase in the amount of tweets being posted per second and the incredible rise in Twittter’s valuation shows just what a popular communication platform it has become on a global scale,” comments a spokesperson for “We’re not surprised at all that interest is high in Twitter. If they were indeed to sell to either Google or Facebook, it’d change the landscape as we know it. Google would enter the social race instantly with a recognised platform, while Facebook would morph into an incredible all-in-one social media hub, we feel. But will Twitter actually consider selling? We’ll have to wait and see!”
