Twitter Inc. briefly mulled a $4 billion acquisition of Clubhouse before talks broke off, according to a new report.

A Bloomberg News report, citing unnamed sources, said the microblogging service in recent months considered a takeover. But after discussions ceased, Clubhouse began to explore ways to raise funding from investors in a round valuing the business at about $4 billion, according to another Bloomberg report.
