Twitter CFO in direct message gaffe.

Twitter's chief financial officer has accidentally sent a public tweet that was meant to be a private direct message to a colleague.

Anthony Noto, who joined the company in July this year,

deleted the tweet soon after he had sent it.

It read: "I think we should buy them. He is on your schedule

for Dec 15 or 16 -- we will need to sell him. i have a plan."

The message has sparked speculation about which firm Noto

was referring to with technology news site Recode and CNBC suggesting Shots, a

selfie app backed by Justin Bieber. According to CNBC, the microblogging

website is particularly interested in the app's more than 3 million users,

nearly two-thirds of whom are women under the age of 24.

The BBC reported that Noto has also recently followed

several employees at Mic, a news website aimed at young people.
