WE HAVE LEARNED THAT TWITTER MAY BE TARGETING SHOTS, THE JUSTIN BIEBER-BACKED SELFIE APP RUN BY THE SO-CALLED KING OF TWITTER HIIMSELF, JOHN SHAHIDI. A SOURCE CLOSE TO THE COMPANY TELLS US THAT TWITTER HAS IN FACT ENGAGED IN TALKS WITH SHOTS, AND THAT THE INTEREST CENTERS AROUND THE HIGH ENGAGEMENT OF YOUNG MILLENNIALS ON SHOTS, SPECIFICALLY 13 TO 18 YEAR OLDS. RIGHT NOW, SHOTS HAS MORE THAN 3 MILLION USERS. NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THEM FEMALES UNDER THE AGE OF 24. THE SOURCE SAYS THE NUMBER OF YOUNG INFLUENCERS ON THE APP LIKE VINE STARS AND UP AND COMING CELEBRITIES ARE PART OF THE DRAW FOR TWITTER. NOW SPECULATIONS SPIKED TODAY ABOUT TWITTER'S M&A PLANS WHEN CFO ANTHONY NOTO SENT OUT THIS TWEET LAST NIGHT. "I STILL THINK WE SHOULD BUY THEM. HE IS ON YOUR SCHEDULE FOR DECEMBER 15 OR 16 – WE WILL NEED TO SELL HIM. I HAVE A PLAN." OF COURSE, WE DON'T KNOW WHO THAT HIM OR HE IS. HE THEN QUICKLY DELETED THAT TWEET.
