Google eyes up bid for Twitter

Google is reportedly working with a financial adviser to consider a potential bid for Twitter Inc as the social media company continues to explore a sale. While the search engine giant has consulted Lazard Ltd, it hasn’t indicated it will definitely make an offer for Twitter, according to a person familiar with the arrangement. But the move suggests Google is evaluating the option, pitting itself against other potential bidders including Walt Disney Co and Inc. The company, which has seen user growth stagnate for more than a year, has been trying to reshape its identity by focusing on video and live events.
