Twitter acquires team behind Fluther

Twitter has just announced that they have acquired the team behind the question and answer site Fluther. Fluther is like Yahoo! Answers or Quora with the ability to categorize questions for specific people. Just to be clear ONLY the 5 member team behind fluther.com has been acquired NOT Fluther.com itself. Both Twitter and Fluther made statements. Fluther.com plans to stay up and running as a separate product from Twitter. The site will not be as quickly developed as it had been because the teams new focus is on Twitter. So what does Twitter gang by doing this? Search. Twitter is looking to use the feature that splits up the questions on Fluther.com somehow, we aren’t sure yet, we will see. The acquisition of this pacific company makes sense since Biz Stone, Twitter’s co founder, is an advisor to Fluther.
