Speaking to Benzinga, William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri said talks of a Salesforce interest in Twitter "doesn't come as a surprise" but he doesn't quite understand the logic behind a deal.

He said an acquisition of Twitter by Salesforce isn't "strategic" or "synergistic" given Twitter's user growth and engagement challenges. Moreover, the analyst is concerned over Salesforce's recent interest in making large acquisitions that doesn't seem to have a logical or strategic fit.
