What is going on with Twitter?

"The entertainment and media would join Salesforce.com Inc. CRM, -0.20% and Alphabet Inc. GOOGL, +1.01% GOOG, +1.14% as companies reported to be interested in acquiring Twitter's TWTR, +1.50%. Microsoft Corp. MSFT, +1.85% has since made its way into the conversation and Disney is also seeking to process the same."

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"

Disney also powered many spectacular animated series and Hollywood fiction movies. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mickey Mouse are the successful examples of it. 

What analysts are saying?

"On the surface, a deal makes no sense, but if you think streaming video is potentially disruptive to live sports, then there is a strategic case to be made." - Albert Fried & Co. analyst Richard Tullo.

Google and Microsoft are joining the race.

According to some Wall Street analysts, because of the price the Disney is most likely to acquire Twitter as it is the most logical choice for them.

Facebook is not interested.

"We think Disney makes the most synergistic sense. The relationship is already incestuous with content deals between the two and Jack Dorsey's seat on Disney's board," Cakmak wrote in a note to clients.

"We've long argued a media company doesn't make sense to acquire Twitter, but we see Disney uniquely positioned to be the exception and keep the platform at arm's length with the ability to forge content deals with competing publishers."
