Wolff Speculates on Possible Twitter Buyers

Even though Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone have stated publicly that they have no interest in selling the social-networking company, Newser founder Michael Wolff told Yahoo! Tech Ticker Williams and Stone will likely be “looking to see what deals might be available.”

Wolff, who is attending Herb Allen‘s media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho this week, sees Google as the “most likely” suitor for Twitter, as it has the resources and Williams and Stone worked with the search-engine giant in the past. He added, however, that he wasn’t sure if the two co-founders would want to trade shares in one pre-public company for shares in another.

He also mentioned News Corp. as a possibility, citing its recent layoffs at MySpace and saying, “I think they probably have lost [the Web 2.0 wars, but] I think they think they can always buy their way back into it.”
