Twitter CEO Evan Williams just teased everyone from his cellphone using less then 140 words. He said “Tomorrow just became a very big day” and continued with “Sorry for the teaser – more later.” What could this mean? Why is he creating such hype about something?
Maybe the tech world is just getting crazy about something that might have nothing to do with Twitter itself and as Dan Frommer from Silicon Alley Insider states “is Even telling us something about his personal life – perhaps a development in his wife’s pregnancy?”
I think most of us would like to believe previous rumors that Twitter is about to become a part of Yahoo, Google, or Microsoft. Could Facebook still be interested? Biz Stone, who is Evan Williams co-founder is in Boston this week, which happens to be home to Spark Capital. Spark Capital invested 15 million during the Series B funding round last year.
Hopefully the fact that Oprah Winfrey is starting to use Twitter tomorrow, isn’t what he teased us about. That is what Cnet/Webware is saying.
Update: I hate to get on the rumor wagon, but as I thought about this more, it would make perfect sense for Twitter to announce that they were being acquired by someone like Google tomorrow on the Oprah show. Talk about reaching critical mass and succeeding in a huge publicity stunt at the same time! Perhaps Twitter even is hiring Ashton Kutcher as their spokesman?
