It's because he uses Twitter all day long and can't bear the thought of Google owning it.

How the fuck could Salesforce not run the company into the ground in some weird way?

At least Google manages products that are somewhat similar.

Try reading the fucking post. It's only five fucking sentences, and that counts "Why?" as a sentence.

There is more than enough to complain about with Gruber's posts without inventing problems that don't exist, you fuckwads.

The "why" part wasn't there when it was first posted. Gruber added that afterwards.

Huh. And no "UPDATE"? Gruber's standards are slipping!

Sorry I doubted you, DFWC commenters.

Salesforce would be better for antitrust purposes. Google getting even bigger than it already is means less opportunity for others to compete. Twitter in Salesforce's hands would be a better, less evil fit. Salesforce helps clients manage their respective clouds to grow their businesses. OTOH, Google mines data for its own benefit and profit.

Thanks. You've been helpful.

One only needs to have witnessed the serial rough facefucking Google has delivered to G+ to know that Twitter in their hands would be a partial-birth abortion.

God damn I hope it's Google so we can watch Gruber's head explode.
