NYT: Apple Considering Investment in Twitter

Evelyn M. Rusli and Nick Bilton, reporting for the NYT:

Apple, which has stumbled in its efforts to get into social media, has talked with Twitter in recent months about making a strategic investment in it, according to people briefed on the matter. […]

Apple has considered an investment in the hundreds of millions of dollars, one that could value Twitter at more than $10 billion, up from an $8.4 billion valuation last year, these people said. They declined to be named because the discussions were private.

So who leaked this — Twitter or Apple? I have my guess.
