Here’s a heck of a rumor that we’ve sourced from two separate people close to the negotiations: Google is in late stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. We don’t know the price but can assume its well, well north of the $250 million valuation that they saw in their recent funding.
Will it be true that Google acquires Twitter?
“Twitter” by the Twitter user might become a marvelous number by this news.
Hundreds of New Yorkers brave the freezing cold in Times Square for their chance to receive their own cash bailout.
Who is Bailout Bill?
I hear that the person who distributed money to the person who told an unhappy story showed up in New York.
I hear that however, there is a condition.
The condition is to grant permission to record an unhappy story.
I hear that the recorded animation will be opened to the public on the homepage of “Bailout Booth.com”.
The homepage seems to be a pawnshop of the Internet according to the TV station in Japan.
The acknowledgment level to this site might go up perhaps greatly by this news.
It might be thought it is cheaper than advertising expense of the television.

Hitwise Ranks Election Traffic To News Sites(November 5, 2008 TechCrunch)
Hitwise has released a ranking of some of the top news sites, measured by traffic on Election Day. CNN.com came out on top, seeing a 146 percent spike over the day before. But MSNBC.com, Fox News, and the Drudge report all saw nice bumps as well. ABCNews.com had a record day, with a 113 percent jump in traffic over the day before. And CNN’s Political Ticker blog by itself saw a 122 percent jump. (Twitter traffic rose 43 percent and traffic to Twitter Election 2008 rose 1,100 percent).
However, I hear that there were news sites where traffic fell oppositely according to the article.
It is fatal as the news site.
It is necessary to change greatly as a news site.

Record Traffic Day At CNN.com: 27 Million Uniques, 276 Million Page Views(November 5, 2008 TechCrunch)
CNN emails to tell us they brought in 27 million unique visitors to their site on election day yesterday, a record. Comscore says they averaged just 5 million unique daily visitors in September, so this is more than 5x normal traffic.
The site also generated an astounding 276 million page views. An average day on CNN is about 35 million page views, according to Comscore worldwide stats.
The almost everyone might have gone to the news site yesterday.
Therefore, the people who visited sites other than the news site might have been less than usual.
