Aquisition of Twitter would benefit both companies. google hardly needs it, but it would definitely make the world a better place.
The declining cost per click is worrisome.
agree with you, but wouldn't you say the promise of just about everything else outweighs that negative? I especially like the way Sundar says YouTube was a moonshot.
How about g+?

ER miss by $GOOG increases chances it acquires $TWTR b/c miss was likely result of ad spend going to $FB so $GOOG needs a social network.
How about Google+ ?

Any purchase of $TWTR is misguided and a waste of capital, no matter how much certain investors and bankers wish and lobby for it to happen. Twitter is likely LOSING active users, meaning their problem goes beyond zero user growth. As efficacy is also highly suspect. Regardless, this would not be accretive in any way to Google.
