'The knuckleheads at Twitter are now open to selling the company'

Twitter’s stock jumped 6% today.

Why? We’re not sure, but it looks like there were thin rumours of Twitter being up for sale. There was also a tweet from Fox Business reporter Charlie Gasparino saying his banking sources think Twitter would be open to selling the company. 

Today is the last day for CEO Dick Costolo. Tomorrow Jack Dorsey takes over as interim CEO.

Until now, most people have believed Twitter would remain an independent company. But, with a CEO transition anything’s possible, including a sale.
