Every few weeks it seems like we hear more rumors that someone is going to buy Twitter. According to the site's co-founder, Biz Stone, none of those rumors have any veracity to them. Stone spoke at a Tokyo event and tried to allay suspicions that he was seriously entertaining any purchase offers. (Computerworld)

"Twitter is not interested in being acquired by a bigger company, we want to build an impressive company on our own and we believe that we can," said Stone.
Statements like this are why I like Twitter. Stone and co. seem to have a real dedication to their work, otherwise they would have sold and taken their millions a few months back. Since their launch, the Twitter team has steadfastly focused on delivering a better user experience and broadening their services offered. They haven't gone public or done anything else that would disrupt their control over their brainchild.

That's an attitude worth respecting, and its the attitude that gives Twitter a good chance of being an ongoing success in the world of social media. Of course, the company is still far too young for us to be able to adequately predict their future. In five years, the whole idea of tweeting could just be a fondly remembered 'flash-in-the-pan' fad. Only time will tell how much staying power they really have.
