What of the following companies merged?
Ebay, PayPal, Twitter, and Snap. My insight:

I am thinking:
1) The payment processing across all companies by users, merchants, and ad companies will be brought under 1 platform and Paypal can process it.

2) Snap can be the place where people view an Ebay product in AR and also the place where people can market a product (A small business owner reaches out to millions of customers on Snap and then people shop on Ebay and pay using Paypal).

3) Twitter integrates live streaming, video chats, video conferencing, and tweeting into 1 jumbo app levering Snap's technology. Twitter leads the way in TV journalism where users and professionals send content to Snap and Twitter users.

      They can’t merge since KFC is owned by Pepsi.

      They're a subsidiary of Yum, an independent and public company that was spun out of Pepsi in the 90s.

      Also, they were making a joke about the quality of chicken. 🙄

    eBay and PayPal were one company before they split.

      Forgot about it, thanks.
      Lets keep PayPal out of the picture and focus on the other 3 as tagged in the post.

    Investing in strategic thinking is a good thing to do, so keep practicing. But the hypotheses you outlined aren't very compelling.

  • What if we end up only shopping at Amazon abd they had lowest price guarantee on everything - will Google sink due to significantly reduced ads?

    Twitter and snap could have some really good synergy together. They seem to have issues with the same target industry and audience and they’re different enough to where a merger could make sense. Although looking at Snap’s current state it might make sense for twitter to stand back and just pick up the carcass in about a year.
