The news site “Platformer” reported on Saturday that Twitter refused to pay the bills for Google’s cloud computing service; Because her contract is about to renew this month.
Twitter had signed a multi-year contract with Google, related to combating spam and protecting accounts, among other things, before billionaire Elon Musk acquired the social networking platform last year.
According to Platformer, Twitter utilizes both its servers and the cloud computing platforms of Amazon and Google for its services. The report lacks information on the potential impact of the Amazon-Google conflict on the operations of Twitter’s trust and safety teams.
Twitter has been trying to renegotiate its agreement with Google since March, according to a report by The Information, a technology news publisher.
The newspaper reported in March that Amazon had informed Twitter about its plan to halt ad payments due to unpaid invoices for Amazon Web Services cloud computing.
According to a source who spoke to Reuters in November 2022, since Musk took ownership of Twitter, he has significantly reduced costs. This has included laying off numerous employees and reducing spending on infrastructure, including cloud computing services, by $1 billion.
Reuters sent an email query to Twitter but did not receive a response. Similarly, a request for comment sent to Google did not receive a response either.
