Twitter acquires Threader to help develop its BlueTick features

San Francisco: Micro-blogging site Twitter has acquired Threader, after launching its Twitter Blue subscription platform in the US and other countries. It is a third-party app that allows users to create and share long-form threads on the platform.

According to Engadget, it’s one of the few apps that allows you to make threads easier to digest. By tagging the threader’s profile and typing compile, the bot will compress a series of tweets into a single article.

Today, we’re bringing this experience to Twitter,” said Threader’s founder. We are proud of what we have achieved together especially as an independent team of two. We’re excited to bring the Threader experience to the millions of people on Twitter.

As part of the announcement, Threader will be shutting down on December 15th, but its feature set will go live as part of Twitter Blue.

In particular the Reader feature, which Twitter helped create by Threader co-founder Mary Dennis. Dennis is joining the company’s Longform team, where Twitter says it will continue to work on ways to make it easier for people to read threads.

The micro-blogging site did not disclose other terms of the acquisition. The deal follows the recent expansion of Twitter Blue in the US and New Zealand.
