Silicon Valley investor Dave McClure has some advice for Google (GOOG): Get out your checkbook and buy Twitter - and do it soon. “Is there a scenario where you think you don’t have to buy Twitter in the near future? I don’t see it,” McClure says. “Whatever your math is, you better do it soon, because you’re getting killed by Facebook.”

    Thanks, last time I checked I couldn't just "buy" Twitter. I love these clueless VCs spending other peoples money. I think VC funds have somehow managed to underperform the stock market over the past 10 years, ie negative returns as opposed to 0% returns. Ha.

    Facebook will be on sale, like myspace.

     

    Does Twitter even make any money?

    Math is pretty simple - neither facebook nor twitter are making money.
    Just wait untill they run out of VC money and buy them at firesale price!
