Twitter Confirms TweetDeck Purchase

Twitter confirmed on Wednesday that it has acquired TweetDeck, a London-based startup that helps people read, write and organize messages posted on the online network.

Financial Terms were not disclosed. Published reports have pegged the price at around $40 million to $50 million.

Iain Dodsworth, founder of Twitter app TweetDeck, also confirmed the long-rumoured deal on his company’s website on Wednesday.

"I am extremely happy and proud to let you know that TweetDeck has been acquired by Twitter. We completed the deal on Tuesday and are now in the process of ‘joining the flock’," he said.

More than 20 million Twitter users have downloaded TweetDeck, making it the second most-popular way to use the service, after Twitter.com.

"This acquisition is an important step forward for us. TweetDeck provides brands, publishers, marketers and others with a powerful platform to track all the real-time conversations they care about. In order to support this important constituency, we will continue to invest in the TweetDeck that users know and love." Twitter chief executive Dick Costolo said in a statement.本文轉載brothersoft,編輯僅做翻譯。詳細請查看原網站文章。
