QUICK HIT: Google Buys Twitter (Sort of)

Posted on 1.18.2017

Google has reportedly purchased Twitter's Fabric developer platform this week.

Fabric, which developers use to build apps and includes tools like Crashlytics, Answers and Fastlane, will become part of Google's Developer Products division.

Twitter revealed that over 580,000 developers have used Fabric's tools since the platform was introduced in 2014, but managed to only power apps on some 2.5 million mobile devices.

How will Google integrate and offer Fabric's suite of offerings? Sound off with a comment below.
