Will Twitter Be Bought?
Due mostly to statements January 6 by former interim Yahoo CEO, Ross Levinsohn, claiming Twitter should buy Yahoo, and why it would be a good marriage, speculation about a Twitter and Yahoo union has grown recently, . Newsrip speculated about this possibility back in August, 2014 in a Special Report. At the time, we considered Yahoo buying Twitter a more likely scenario, especially if Twitter's stock price and capitalization did not appreciate to the $50 or $60 range, a range some analysts have been airing for awhile.

One area Twitter with Yahoo might be mutually beneficial is in search, especially news search. A few days ago, Statcounter, a web usage analytics firm, said Yahoo's share of internet search rose from 8.6 percent in November to 10.4 percent in December.

Bill Cosby's Accusers Grow
This time press coverage follows.
Traditional news media and legacy newspapers failed Bill Cosby's accusers a decade ago and there may only be hollow vindication for them now, catching up with him at age 77 when he is old and tired. As a performer, however, Bill Cosby is still active and his almost heroic patriarchal persona was on the verge of resurrection in an upcoming NBC sitcom when he was sucked up in the media storm he's in now. There's power in numbers and in pattern and his accusers and their accounts of what they say he did to them have both. Then there's this: 'Spanish Fly', a mysterious concoction Cosby discusses in comic routines and in an interview in the past is slang for rape drug, according to unofficial sources we've unearthed.
