Not the first time that comes to the fore the issue of Apple and social networks. His attempt was unsuccessful Ping itself, but also sounded several times rumors of a possible interest in Apple's social networks like Twitter and Foursquare. This time is the New York Times stating that Apple could invest some of their reserves on Twitter
The source said the talks took place a few months ago, and are a sign that can form a stronger partnership in the face of intense competition with Google and Facebook. Although negotiations are not currently, if we do a bit of memory, Tim Cook told the conference that Apple D10 should be more social and they do not necessarily acquire a social network, if not deeply integrate social media into their operating systems, just as they do Twitter and Facebook.
Apple's relationship with both social networks currently enjoys good health, but finally this news is true, it would be a move to which Apple has accustomed us. The Cupertino company usually acquired from time to time small start-up to take over their services, but not investing in a share of a large company would be one of the most important movements of Tim Cook. Therefore, the aim of this participation seems to be greater access to social understanding Apple can bring Twitter and pave the way for greater integration of social network with Apple products.
Personally, I agree with Tim Cook at Apple needs to be more social, as much use of the block devices is focused on social networks. But being more social does not mean to acquire or create a social network, Apple is a hardware and software, that is their business, not social networks. The integration of Twitter and Facebook in iPhone OS and OS X is exceptional, covers all the needs that a user might want, then why buy them?. If I had to make my prediction, I'd say Apple will not buy any social network, but will increase your performance on this front, gaining knowledge and deepening social networking more with other actors such as Flickr, Vimeo or Yelp, which have some system integration into the bitten apple.
