image for Apple Inc. May Invest in Twitter; Twitter Birdies Elated
Twitter birds may soon be packin' iPhones and iPads.

When news broke this week that Apple Inc. is reportedly interested in investing in Twitter, the Twitter birdies were on a high. They stopped delivering tweets for a few minutes to celebrate.

"We couldn't be happier," chirped one of the birdies. "A potential member of the family with lots and lots of dough. What's not to like?"

One Twitter birdie took to Twitter to tweet out her excitement ("We may be biting into the Apple"), while another texted her joy: "10q Apple 4 thinking abt joining R family."

Adding to the fun is the buzz that, if the deal goes through, all employees will be given iPhones and iPads. "At last we'll finally be joining the 21st century," chirped an ecstatic birdie. "Twitter has been treating us like birdbrains."

A directive by Twitter management was sent out to all the birdies. "Take care not to poop on Apple Inc. facilities. Instead, aim for Google or Microsoft buildings. As the proverb goes, Don't shit on your own doorstep."
