$50m bid for TweetDeck

Twitter bids $50m for London Silicon Roundabout company TweetDeck

Tweetdeck that contributes 11 % of Twitter’s high value traffic seems to be in the middle of a bidding war between Twitter and UberMedia. Although we all thought & (it was reported that UberMedia) had acquired TweetDeck back in Feb. It seems that deal didn’t go through and its open day once again.

Question is will this attract new bidders into the mix ? That should really stir things up.

The other point was why is Tweetdeck killing the goose this early ? Can’t they decide to grow the product and get into the ad revenues themselves ?

Whichever way this goes I think the best option would be for them to sit back watch others trip over themselves. I’m guessing they’re in no hurry anyway and have a super long Easter break to take things really easy 🙂
