HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud, and Kingdom Holding Company (KHC), announced today, Monday, December 19th 2011, a combined investment of $300 Million in Twitter. This investment was the result of several months of negotiations and comprehensive due diligence and represent a strategic stake in Twitter.

With 250 million Tweets per day and more than 100 million active users, there is something for everyone on Twitter, no matter what you`re interested in or where you are in the world. Twitter can be accessed on the web, on smartphones and on the simplest of feature phones.

Furthermore, other entities that fall under SRMG are Al Khaleejiya for Publicity Advertising and Public Relations and Al Madina Printing and Publishing Company. Furthermore, KHC is owner of approximately 7 percent of News Corporation's Class B Common Stock.
