Apple Officials Said to Consider Stake in Twitter

According to an article in the New York Times, Apple has been in talks with Twitter over the past year discussing the possibility of Apple investing hundreds of millions of dollars into the social media giant and partner against rivals Microsoft and Facebook. The investment would be a departure for Apple, who usually buys companies rather than invest in them.

Such a deal would give Apple more access to Twitter’s deep understanding of the social Web, and pave the way for closer Twitter integration into Apple’s products.
