Al Gore got drunk and almost bought Twitter
October 21 , 2013
Social media giant Al Gore came close to buying Twitter back in 2009.
"My partner Joel Hyatt and I, back when I was with Current TV, which we founded, tried to buy Twitter," he said. "It's become a global utility. It's a great business."
Reports suggest that there's more to the story than just that. A book named 'Hatching Twitter' talks about how Gore and his partner drank a little too much before meeting with the co-founders of Twitter in San Francisco.
The deal didn't happen and Twitter is soon going to begin trading stocks on NASDAQ.
