Twitter shares spiked on a fake report the company has found a buyer.

A report on a website made to look like Bloomberg.com claimed that Twitter has gotten an offer to be taken over for $ 31 billion.

Bloomberg spokesman Ty Trippet subsequently said the Twitter story is fake.

Following circulation of this article, which we first saw at The Fly, shares of Twitter spiked as much as 5%.

Shares of the company quickly gave up most of those gains in morning trade on Tuesday.

Here’s the wild ride in the stock.
