Twitter has held talks with Chinese video service TikTok to discuss the possibility of a merger, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources.
In the meantime, Microsoft remains the main contender for the American video service sector.
Earlier, the US president said that the aforementioned manufacturing giant or another American company must acquire TikTok by September 15th.
Otherwise, as promised Trump, the application will be banned from use in the country.
The CNBC TV channel previously reported that Microsoft is ready to pay from $10 to $30 billion for TikTok.
According to the WSJ, Twitter is also interested in merging with the US TikTok sector.
TikTok is not giving up after Trump’s decree to ban the video service.
