The web is blowing up with rumors about Twitter’s suspected interest in purchasing the widely used Soundcloud. Nearly every blog runs because embeds from their subscribers profiles are in use; given Twitter’s previous interests in this market, it’s not completely unthinkable that they would want to purchase the site. Soundcloud and Twitter generally have a lot of overlay, most likely due to artists needing Twitter as a part of their marketing processes. Both stand to benefit, yet the deal seems to be more in the favor of Soundcloud, but no official statements have been released by either party and they both declined for comments on the matter. One issue that may arise is the crackdown on illegal remixes, but we’ll see just how that is resolved at a later date. For now, all we have are questions and conjectures.
