AOL Close to Buying TechCrunch? [Updated]

Om Malik is reporting that the deal is close to being done, and it all reminded me of a tweet from a while back from Kevin Rose talking about TechCrunch being sold. I can’t find the tweet now (email if you can), essential Rose @replied to Arrington (the founder of TechCrunch) saying that he got his email and asked if he was really selling TechCrunch.

[Updated: 9/28/10 at 10:29 AM] It’s official.
