Google Or Microsoft Should Buy Twitter For $2B, Says Buddy Media's Lazerow

If he were Google or Microsoft, he would cough up $2 billion and somehow harness the 100-200 million users later.

On the Twitter war with Facebook, Mike says Twitter is not toast because it’s fundamentally a different platform. Facebook is the biggest thing since Google, whereas Twitter is a personal newswire. And lets face it, FriendFeed never had anything on Twitter anyway.
