Clubhouse turned down $4 billion from Twitter

According to reports from Bloomberg, the negotiation between Houseclub and Twitter would never take off.

Clubhouse, the social app with audio chat launched a year ago and which is attracting more and more followers in recent months, would have ended up in the crosshairs of Twitter. The social network created by Jack Dorsey, according to Bloomberg News, would have offered four billion dollars to take over the brand. However, the US agency made it clear that the deal never took off and the offer was rejected. Clubhouse is based in San Francisco, but its popularity has literally exploded after the audio appearances of billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg: a presence that has convinced a growing number of users to download the App during the pandemic. For the moment, however, the social network is only available by invitation on the Ios platform. Active weekly users are around 10 million euros.

From Twitter to Spotify, from Telegram to LinkedIn, everyone wants to copy Clubhouse, the audio-only streaming content social network that spiked in popularity between February and March that now risks being overshadowed by the advance of tech giants. The latest to be inspired by the Clubhouse model is LinkedIn. Microsoft’s platform dedicated to the world of work is implementing a new tool based on the use of voice. These are sound rooms, just like Clubhouse, in which speakers interact with each other vocally in front of a virtual audience of listeners. At the moment there is no launch date. It is certain, however, that Twitter Spaces, the audio space available on Android and iOS, will arrive in April, after a testing phase, and will therefore be less elitist than Clubhouse, which at the moment works only on iOS and by invitation only.
