When Bloomberg reporter asked Williams whether Twitter would be an acquired target, he was unwilling to talk about this topic at first. He claimed then Twitter should consider the options include acquisition and merging.

Microsoft ex-CEO Steve Ballmer and A Saudi Arabia Prince show willingness to acquire Twitter in accordance with the news reported lately.

Silicon Valley analysts claimed Twitter is worthy to acquire. It still has attractions to obtain some more resources. The monthly active users of Twitter had 313 million in June. Its increase rate was under 1% compared with the growth in March. Instagram now obtains more users than Twitter.

Besides user growth difficulty, Twitter faces the problem of how to turn its users resource into income and profit. Rob Enderle assumed Twitter is still a valuable company whose value reflects in users growth instead of its revenue models.

Twitter suffered $400 million loss in the second half of last year and the first half of this year. Its total revenue just reached $2.5 billion.

Though the analysts and tech media assumed Twitter is in a dilemma, Williams has faith in Twitter’s development. He implied there is no app like Twitter that tweets such a great amount of messages each day.
