Twitter Obtains Spindle–Location-Based Social Start-up


twitter-spindleTwitter fell in love with Spindle and finally took a bold step to acquire it. Good move and surely it will pay off for twitter.

Spindle is a smart location-based social start-up that has built an app that helps you check-in location and discover local places of interest nearby. The constant question people always would ask ”what is happening nearby right now and where?” is what spindle can easily help you figure out.


“By joining forces with Twitter, we can do so much more to help you find interesting, timely, and useful information about what’s happening around you,” the Spindle guys said.

The Spindle team will relocate from their headquarters in Boston to Twitter’s offices in San Francisco as a result of the acquisition.
