RARE ALERT: Walt Disney Co said to have rekindled interest in buying Twitter; price agreed

Tuesday, 25 October 2016, 11:03 pm

Some rather juicy RARE has landed in my lap.

    Any Update from your Disney Source ????!??!? I DO think you are right on your intel, must not quite be there with an Ink'd deal. The TW deal with AT&T will force Softbank, Disney, or Goog to make a move. Perhaps even APPL

    Hey Ben

    Will shoot me an email about this Story ? I just want your take on whether your Disney Source is Legitimate, or perhaps he got it wrong. My take is that he is RIGHT ON, but just early on the News. Anyway, I have 7-digits in the Twitter play, so I just want to make sure I am fully informed. Now that your story is public, I see no reason you can't share your analysis on the Source, and information.

    Regards

    Byron

    This deal makes a lot of sense, compared to some others however, I believe the rumored price is to low, upper twenties? the company is worth more.

    Today Twitter announced partnership with Disney for streaming some content so does this mean no buyout? Any other rumors regarding potential bidders for Twitter buyout?
