Twitter has had preliminary discussions about a “combination” with TikTok, the WSJ reported. So far, only Microsoft has publicized its plan to acquire TikTok before Sept 15. Twitter may be the latest possible suitor for TikTok. However, its bid for TikTok is a long-shot, considering the strong opponent – Microsoft – in line. Furthermore, it may not be able to afford TikTok because of its high price. Neither TikTok nor Twitter has commented on these reports.
