In the past few years, we have seen the immense growth of companies all over the planet that are buying other small setups to further their business and financial ambitions. This year, the trend was kicked off with Facebook's highly talked about acquisition of WhatsApp. Now it seems like Twitter is becoming the next big one in the line.
According to reports, Popular social networking site Twitter has acquired Cover Android lockscreen app which lets you customise what apps you see and when. So with the new deal now in place for the same, creators of the Cover lock screen app will now be employed by Twitter.
While Twitter has its own ambitions with the acquisition of Cover, for those of you who aren't really sure as to what exactly the Cover app is or what it does, the app only displays a selected range of information on the display screen, unlike regular lock screen apps.
Cover primarily provides quick access to applications in a more intelligent and dedicated way by collecting information regarding which apps you primarily access at what time, and later placing them on the concerned device's lock screen.
"Since launching Cover in October, we've had the privilege of reaching hundreds of thousands of people. We've improved Cover with their help and feedback, and demonstrated how Android can help make people's lives easier," the post states.
"Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android. They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter - more useful and more contextual - and together we're going to make that happen."
"We'll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we're thrilled to create something even better at Twitter," it adds.
As of now, Cover is set to remain available in the Play Store while the company focuses its attention on the work at Twitter. "If that changes down the road, we'll provide another update here," it adds.
