Twitter has acquired Bagcheck, a sharing and discovery platform.
Bagcheck, which was founded by Sam Pullara and Luke Wroblewski, is a social network designed for gadget lovers who want to tell others about the products they use and why. Users aren’t required to share only tech-related "bags," though, so anyone can discuss just about anything they use in their daily lives. And they do–members discuss everything from digital cameras to cooking utensils on the site.
In addition to acquiring Bagcheck, Twitter will be adding Pullara to its engineering team. Wroblewski won’t be joining Twitter, but plans to start "working on the next big thing."
Recent Twitter acquisitions include BackType, TweetDeck, and AdGrok.
