Apple, Facebook, Google: Who Needs Twitter More?

The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the latest business news.

With Facebook acknowledging the importance (and challenge) of monetizing its own mobile division, is Twitter worth more to Facebook?

In this segment, the guys analyze which tech titan needs Twitter more and which would provide the best fit.
