Sources familiar with Disney, which was mulling a possible Twitter purchase last week, say the media giant has decided not to move forward.
Earlier today Recode reported that Google, a logical buyer for Twitter who had also was hired a banker to kick the company's tires, was not going to bid; Apple is also unlikely. Twitter shares dropped 9 percent in after-hours trading.
For now, that leaves Salesforce as the only potential buyer for Twitter, though the company has never confirmed publicly that it wants to make a deal. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff appeared on CNBC today and refused to comment directly on any interest in Twitter.
