The market is rife with Twitter buyout speculation in recent weeks. Although Suntrust's Robert Peck doesn't see Twitter getting bought, he put together a list of most likely acquirers because his clients asked him to.

"We do not believe Twitter is likely to sell in 2016 for 3 main reasons: 1) the CEO (Jack Dorsey) has been in his role for only ~1 year; 2) the company is currently launching several initiatives; and 3) we believe the newly reconstituted board is supportive of the CEO," Peck wrote in a note to clients Tuesday.

"[The] most logical acquirer would be a strategic company from the large telcos, media companies, and scaled Internet companies group."

Here are the potential acquirers of Twitter, according to Suntrust.
