Don't believe the hype, writes Tim Carmody of the supposed Apple (AAPL) interest in Twitter. The WSJ reports discussions occurred more than a year ago and nothing is currently in the works. To Carmody, the original story smells like a well-timed leak by tech investors in a bit of panic over the plunging values of social sites like Facebook, Zynga, and Groupon. "When it comes to M&A rumors, this is a very old game."

    We all know the old saying ' if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is '. Nothing like a bit of rumor-mongering to give credo to this !!!

    The only rumors are because it never comes from Apple.
    It always a reliable source or a unidentified,. or suppliers.
    Never from Apple...that is the reason the STREET holds them to a higher standard. $600.00 with any other company would be a $1000.00

    Thank goodness... I can't see how Twitter could be monetized other than through ads, and AAPL needs least to be a company that depends on pure third party advertising revenue as one of its earnings centers.

    No thanks. I'll keep AAPL and look forward to great new products in the future.
