WSJ: Apple/Twitter Investment Talk Is Year-Old News

Shira Ovide and Jessica E. Vascellaro, reporting for the WSJ:

Apple Inc. held discussions with Twitter Inc. more than a year ago about taking a strategic investment in the short-messaging service, according to a person familiar with the talks. People familiar with the matter said there are no current formal investment or acquisition discussions between the companies.

News of the investment talks was first reported by the New York Times.

Translation: “The New York Times blew it.”
