One of the hottest rumors in the technology sphere — apart from the ongoing talk about Apple (s aapl) buying Beats — has centered around Twitter (s twtr) making a bid for SoundCloud, as a way of re-entering the music market after its ill-fated experiment with Twitter Music.

The Journal quotes sources as saying the two were in advanced negotiations, but Twitter brass decided that “the numbers didn’t add up.” SoundCloud recently did a financing round that valued the company at about $700 million, which would have made it a large deal for Twitter — and the latter’s stock has been under pressure lately, which has also likely made large acquisitions unappetizing.
