Vala Afshar, the Chief Digital Evangelist for Salesforce made an abrupt "tweet" lauding the company soon after CNBC reported the rumors of sales talks which included the mentioning of his company.

Taking over Twitter can be a vindication of the companys previous botched efforts with the social experiment.
