then they could finally can G+
 
Anyone else thinking Google is going to buy Twitter in the near future?

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo resigning. Leaving in that manner leads me to believe he must know something we don't.

Would be a great "data play" for Google. The social network would allow Google to finally have that social identity it's been missing.

Wonder what would become of G+ should Google acquire Twitter?

Google has quietly launched a GitHub competitor, Cloud Source Repositories.

Google hasn't announced it yet, but the company earlier this year started offering free beta access to Cloud Source Repositories, a new service for storing and editing code on the ever-expanding Google Cloud Platform.
