Twitter has acquired Fluther, as announced today, "we're adding four engineers and one designer through our acquisition of the team at Fluther, Inc. During our conversations with Fluther's team, we were continually impressed by their technical talent, entrepreneurial spirit, and much of the thinking behind the question-and-answer product they've spent the last couple of years building.
When the Fluther team joins us they'll focus on helping users discover the most relevant content on Twitter. Their product, Fluther.com, isn't part of the acquisition and will remain separate from Twitter," said Twitter.
"We're thrilled to be joining such a fantastic company and to have the opportunity to participate in the next stage of Twitter's growth.
We love Twitter, and we think their wonderful culture and technology are a perfect match for our team. It's the ideal place for us to keep building things that people love," said the Fluther team.
