I’ve been on a mission to find out how the world’s biggest technology company is trying to save itself from the onslaught of competition from Google.
Google announced on Wednesday that it would buy Twitter for $20bn in a deal that is widely expected to close in the second half of 2017.
The acquisition will make it the world “biggest social network” and is expected to boost the search engine’s revenue and user base.
The price tag of the deal is less than a third of what Twitter spent on advertising in 2016.
But the big news in this week’s Fortune 100 was that the company’s Chief Executive, Susan Wojcicki, and Chief Operating Officer, Anthony Noto, are joining Google.
The announcement was made in a keynote address at Google’s Google+ conference in New York City.
The new CEO will take over from Susan Woscik, who left Google in February, and Noto will become the company ‘s 21st Chief Executive Officer, the company announced.
The news has been met with mixed reactions online.
But in an interview with Reuters, one of the many Twitter fans that has been following the company closely, wrote: “They’ve made the decision to go all in with a big, flashy new acquisition.
I guess they think they’re making the right one.
I have no clue why.”
Twitter is not the only social network to have had a big acquisition, but the $20-billion deal seems to be the biggest yet.
Twitter bought Vine back in 2012, and its acquisition of Snapchat in 2016 is now the biggest in the history of online advertising.
The deal is also notable for two other things.
First, it is the largest deal to be completed by any single company in the internet advertising space, with about $17 billion spent on media and content over the past five years, according to research firm Forrester Research.
Second, it could open the door to the creation of new media businesses.
While Facebook and Instagram are dominant in online advertising, their brands are not necessarily established, and they are not yet the most valuable brands in the world, analysts say.
Wojcik is known as a big believer in the power of social networks, and she is also known as one of Twitter’s biggest supporters in the social media world.
She helped the company get its first billion users in 2014.
Woscikar is also a social media entrepreneur, and in 2016 she led the launch of Twitter for Business, a program that is aimed at helping businesses and organisations reach their potential by offering an online platform for business owners to market and grow their businesses.
She also has a long track record of working with Twitter.
She joined the company in 2010 as its CEO.
She helped lead the company through its acquisition, and the two women have worked together on several projects over the years.
Wodcik helped the social network develop an extensive advertising platform called Tweeter, which was used to help advertisers reach their customers, according the company.
She and Nototo also have a long history of working together in the online advertising space.
Twitter’s social media team was created in 2015, after Noto joined Twitter from Google, and Woscik served as the company VP of global product management.
In 2016, she helped launch the company Twitter Ads for Business and Twitter Ads, which are targeted advertising programs.
In 2017, she was appointed as VP of digital advertising at Facebook, where she worked on advertising initiatives for both Facebook and WhatsApp, according her LinkedIn profile.
She left Facebook in 2019 to focus on her new role at Twitter.
In a statement, Woscinik said that her time at Twitter was an exciting time for me.
“I look forward to continuing my career in social media and helping Google expand its reach across the world.
I am very excited to join the team at Google, which is a great company and a leader in digital advertising,” she said.
The tech giant’s move to acquire Twitter will not affect Twitter’s advertising operations.
The social media platform has a $20 million cash position in the US, and Twitter said it had no plans to divest from its advertising business.
Twitter did not respond to a request for comment.
The acquisition comes as Google is also looking to buy Instagram, the Instagram-owned photo sharing app that has become a powerful force in the advertising space in recent years.
Google has also been making big moves into social media.
It acquired Instagram last year, and on Tuesday, it announced that it will buy the Instagram platform for $1.3 billion.
Twitter has also struggled to find an online presence, having struggled to get people to use its site, which has been around since 2007 and has grown to more than 1 billion users.
Twitter had said in a statement that it is investing $1 billion in its advertising platform, but did not specify how it will use the money.
The company said it will invest in its business as well as its other businesses
