    Doubtful, Google just recently negotiated for direct access to Twitter's Firehose. If they had plans on to acquire them, they wouldn't have gone through all the trouble to get access...

    I don't think so, Google have no plans to buy twitter and according to me it won't affect SEO behavior as well.....

    Twitter isn't up for sale. Google is only trying to get the partnership with Twitter again to get "live feed" integrated in Google SERP's.

    If true, it would mean nothing to me.

    If this is true, it seems to me like they are looking for more revenue sources.

    For SEO, it won't make any difference.

    If Google was able to index Twitter posts, it would make Twitter user's life easier. Can't see why it would affect SEO. Links would still be nofollow.
    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    I wouldn't say the idea of Google buying Twitter is too far fetched.

    Look at Google Video, it sucked so Google bought Youtube.

    Now look at G+, it sucks so Google could very well want to buy out a popular social platform with tons of existing traffic that's not being monetized.

    Twitter as part of Google is worth far more than Twitter being run independently.
