Twitter Acquires Breaker to Expand its Audio Focus
Twitter's certainly putting its faith into audio connection. After launching the first wave of testing for its new, Clubhouse-style audio 'Spaces' feature last month, the company has today announced that it's acquired podcast listening app Breaker, which it will use to build out Spaces and enhance the experience.
It's not entirely clear how Twitter will integrate Breaker at this stage, but Breaker co-founder Leah Culver has noted that the Breaker team will now begin work on Twitter Spaces. The Breaker app itself will shut down on Friday, January 15th.
