Twitter Considering Buying SoundCloud, YouTube Wants Twitch

There is a whole lot of buying going on in the tech industry right now. According to multiple reports, Twitter is considering a deal to buy SoundCloud, and the Google-owned YouTube is close to acquiring Twitch. SoundCloud is a free music and audio-sharing service with over 250 million users. The proposed acquisition comes after Twitter shuddered its own failed #Music app in April.
