Former Vice President Al Gore tried to purchase social media website Twitter one drunken night in 2009, according to a new book about the company.

The book, entitled "Hatching Twitter" and authored by The New York Times' Nick Bilton, alleges Gore got drunk in a San Francisco hotel with Twitter founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone and offered to purchase the company.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV on Thursday, the former presidential candidate confirmed he had at one point tried to purchase Twitter.

"Back when I was with current TV...[my partner and I] tried to buy Twitter," he said. "They built that business into a fantastic success."

Gore added in the interview he is "very bullish on Twitter."

The former vice president also sits on the board of Apple.
