Earlier this week to propose a partnership.

You're outraged.

They don't have content.

How can it be a music service if you're not going to pay the content provider?

I like twitter because it is clean and uncluttered.

I go to twitter for specific reason, and that is news.

And i transmit news.

I don't want to clutter it up with as our music.

Something this is the problem.

You go there for a specific herb is.

You get what you want and get out.

That is not going to drive eyeballs.

Today acquire something like pandora or do they have to build it as they are doing?

Hold on.

We will see what they're going to build and rollout, but at the very least, they're trying to figure out how music could fit into the portfolio.

Whether that means going down a different path -- i would agree.

Acquiring pandora would be a better solution.

If i want to listen to music, blue oyster call, i will listen to it.

I don't need twitter to do it.

Is this an example of a company that was great as a standalone private company that goes public, and now they say, how are we going to be the earnings next call -- quarter?

Back to this whole idea that innovation changes radically when companies go public, this is how innovation happens for publicly traded companies.

They make these deals and acquisitions and invest in things to grow the portfolio.

Sadness and exclusive, the only one at the table that knew who lou oyster call was was larry kantor.

I've heard of them.
