Twitter Resumes Paying Google Cloud for its Services

Twitter has resumed paying Google Cloud for its services after a strained relationship

Twitter resumes paying Google Cloud again for its services, mending a rift that developed when Elon Musk bought the social network and ceased making payments to Google and other businesses.

A person with knowledge of the incident claims that Twitter's new CEO, Linda Yaccarino, played a key role in repairing the connection. According to the individual, who asked to remain anonymous to discuss a private subject, the two firms are also considering more extensive cooperation that may involve advertising and Google using Twitter's API.

There are presently no problems between the firms, according to a second individual who knows the situation. Google and Twitter denied requests for comment.

Twitter has pressed several merchants for reductions since billionaire Musk bought the San Francisco-based social networking service last year. According to someone who knows the situation, Musk's ambition to cut cloud computing costs has become a focus.

According to three people who know the situation, Twitter has paid Alphabet Inc.'s Google Cloud between US$200 million and US$300 million annually. The social networking firm heavily relies on Google Cloud for machine learning and data processing.

According to Platformer, Twitter had ceased using Google Cloud to pay its invoices.

At first, it was difficult for Google to speak with Musk about the outstanding invoices. According to two sources, Google personnel contacted individuals at his space exploration company, SpaceX, which also does business with Google Cloud, to get in touch with him.

To force Twitter to pay, Google has several tools at its disposal, including limiting features of the cloud computing system.

In 2018, the businesses made their alliance public. One of Google Cloud's most significant clients in the past was Twitter, but the company has subsequently expanded its clientele. After announcing its first profitable quarter earlier this year, Google intends to employ artificial intelligence to catch up to more powerful cloud competitors like Microsoft Corp. and Inc.
