TheStreet: 9 1 inShare Link Comment Do Twitter and Facebook Have to Fear Justin Bieber-Backed Shots?

Jenn Van Grove writing for TheStreet dug into the rumors of whether or not Twitter would acquire Shots.

An acquisition by any network would be strategic in any monetization strategy.

Van Grove reached out to Brian Solis, among others, for comment
