It's Not Hard To Figure Out Which Startup Twitter Will Try To Buy Next

It's pretty easy to tell which startup Twiter will try to buy next: just keep track of which mobile photo-sharing app Twitter executive chairman Jack Dorsey is using at the moment.

For months, Dorsey used Instagram to share photos with his Twitter followers.

And reportedly, Twitter tried to buy Instagram before Facebook swooped in with a billion dollars.

After the Instagram acquisition, Dorsey started snapping photos with iPhone app Camera+.

Then Twitter made an offer to buy TapTapTap, the company behind Camera+. This offer was declined.

Now, Dorsey's Twitter stream is full of photos taken with an iOS app called Snapseed.

It's a pretty safe bet  Nik Software, Inc., Snapseed's parent company, can, at the very least expect a phone call from Dorsey.

Will an aquisition happen? Who knows.

It turns out Nik Software was founded way back in 1995 and has a nice business going. From its about page:
