Twitter acquires Atebits for Tweetie
Twitter has announced that they have acquired Atebits which makes the popular Twitter application Tweetie.
Tweetie would be renamed Twitter for iPhone and would be offered for free. It currently sells for USD 2.99.
Atebits’ Loren Brichter would now join the Twitter mobile team. He would now work on a version of Tweetie for the Apple iPad.
One of the reasons said behind this acquisition to have an official presence for the Apple mobile devices (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch).
Tweetie also has a version for Apple Mac, so we are also likely to see an official Twitter client for the Apple Mac platform.
