The publication says that Twitter offer reached $4 billion. Unfortunately, it is not known which of the companies started negotiations or what happened to make them fail.
The Clubhouse was launched last year and, although it is only available for iOS devices, it popularized the format of live audio conversations. Meanwhile, Twitter, Facebook, Discord, LinkedIn and Spotify have already announced that they are working on their own versions of the Clubhouse.
The social network became so popular that their invites started to be sold for more than $100 on the web because of the access restrictions.
