Wow, hours after the ‘bombshell’ of Twitter releasing it’s own Official Twitter application for BlackBerry, Twitter continue on the client offensive.
They are now announcing they have acquired Tweetie for iPhone.
What is crucial here is that Loren Brichter, developer of the Tweetie range of products, is also joining Twitter. Which aside from the additional discomfort of Twitter owning further mobile platforms now leaves the question as to what they will do with Tweetie for Mac . It is not clear if they have also acquired this product too. And if they havn’t, will Loren be able to continue to maintain Tweetie for Mac independently if he is a Twitter employee?
It would be strange to acquire one and not the other (especially as they share the same name and code DNA). And so I predict we might soon see the announcement of Tweetie for Mac becoming the official client for the Mac.
Further proof, perhaps, that Twitter is definitely now filling its own hole (slightly NSFW).
