Twitter to take buyer bids

Revenue-averse Microblogging site Twitter is opening up its doors to a potential acquisition.

A report from the Wall Street Journal cites sources familiar in reporting that this week, Twitter is entertaining bids from potential buyers.

Among the possible suitors named was Marc Benioff. The Salesforce.com founder is said to be interested in taking on Twitter to help bolster its CRM service as a method to connect companies with customers.

Twitter data has featured prominently in Salesforce's CRM service, particularly the new Einstein AI platform, which can analyze tweets and other metadata to help suggest possible actions for companies to take. ®
