Another Twitter acquisition to add to the list: Spindle, a search technology company that informs users about what’s happening at local businesses around them – kind of like the “push” to Foursquare’s “pull.”
Spindle, based in Boston, will be relocating to Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters, and its services will be “sunsetted” (shut down) as the company focuses on “new and exciting opportunities,” according to the Spindle blog.
Twitter announced yesterday afternoon that it has acquired a little-known scalable computing startup called Ubalo.
Founded in 2011, Palo Alto-based Ubalo simplifies large-scale computing, enabling its users to write just the code they need for analysis or processing without worrying about the complexities of integration and scaling.
In a bid to strengthen its resolve against malware and other malicious attacks, Twitter has acquired Dasient, an internet security company founded by ex-Google staffers Neil Daswani, Shariq Rizvi and Ameet Ranadive, for an undisclosed sum.
The move appears to be largely a talent purchase, and Dasient will be bringing their “technology, tools, and team” to the revenue engineering team at Twitter, effective immediately.
