Bloomberg Reports Disney Working on Potential Twitter Offer

lzwzqehmgiwsswwcvexd

Walt Disney is said to be working with an adviser on a potential Twitterbid, according to a Bloomberg report on Monday, and the speculation sent the social network’s shares on an intra-day run.

In recent months, speculation that Twitter will be sold has gathered steam. Last week, sources told CNBC that several technology and media companies had expressed interest in acquiring Twitter, includingGoogle and Salesforce.com

Earlier in the day, Twitter’s stock was down 4 percent but turned positive after the news, with trading almost double its 30-day average volume. Meanwhile, Disney’s shares were down more than 1 percent after the news.

This story is developing. Please check back for further updates

SnapChat Changes Company Name To Snap INC

screen-shot-2016-09-26-at-10-25-44-am

Along with SnapChat’s new pair of sunglasses, spectacles, which will retail for $129, the company will also be changing its name to Snap INC. The company makes it clear that more products are coming.

In a separate blog post, founder Evan Spiegel explained why he’s dropping the word “chat” like this: “When we were just getting started it made sense to name our company Snapchat Inc., because Snapchat was our only product! Now that we are developing other products, like Spectacles, we need a name that goes beyond just one product.”

The change also has a more serious business purpose — to make it easier for people to distinguish the company from its services. The name of the app will stay the same, for example, but if people want to search for news about the company specifically, they’ll have to look for Snap Inc. More on the spectacle glasses HERE.
