As reported by cnet,
Twitter is acquiring Squad, a social media app built around users’ ability to share their screens with one another.
“They’ll join our product, design, and eng teams and help accelerate our work to bring people new and creative tools to start and join conversations on the service,” tweeted Ilya Brown, head of product management at Twitter, on Friday.
Unfortunately for fans of Squad, Twitter will be shutting down the screen sharing service as it brings the Squad team into the fold, the company confirmed in an email.
Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
