Twitterbox: MySpace sale

@scandb

Justin Timberlake has bought MySpace for $35m and Google have released a potential Facebook-killer. This week is weird.

@electroross

I still believe myspace has a USP in music and could grow with a new (Spotifyesque) business model.

@ValdisKrebs

How soon before Facebook becomes like MySpace? MySpace follows Orkut, 6 Degrees, AOL and others into the internet dustbin of has-beens.

@rjamesjones

If anyone is feeling annoyed that Murdoch is getting his way -- MySpace was valued at $12bn in 2007.

It has now just been sold for $35m.

@StuffTV

Fact of the day: News Corp sold MySpace for 350 times less than the company's 2007 valuation. Ouch!

Veronica Guerin anniversary

@Dyl

Veronica Guerin is such an inspiration, she put the spotlight on drug traffickers and showed and wrote about what no one else could. RIP.

@SeanMcP

Remembering Veronica Guerin. She will be missed a lot. An inspiration.

@SweetLikeAli

Veronica Guerin. Such an amazing woman, who changed both journalism and criminal law. RIP.
