Twitter acquires cover

Cover a free app for Android which add shortcuts to your favorite apps in by replacing lock screen of your phone.Cover was founded by former employees who were worked at google,facebook and more top companies.Now cover  was acquired by twitter.

twitter acquires cover


Cover in their blog  post mentioned about this,

cover
We started Cover a year ago because we believed in two things: 1) the untapped potential of the supercomputers we carry in our pockets, and 2) the amazing power of Android. We built a replacement for Android’s default lockscreen that makes our phones easier to use by adapting to our context — providing fast access to the right apps at the right time.
Since launching Cover in October, we’ve had the privilege of reaching hundreds of thousands of people. We’ve improved Cover with their help and feedback, and demonstrated how Android can help make people’s lives easier.
It’s been an incredible journey, a journey that we’re excited to announce is taking a turn today as we bring the Cover team to Twitter to take these ideas even further.
Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android. They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter.
So what does this mean for the Cover app? For now, Cover will remain available in the Play Store while we focus our attention on our work at Twitter. If that changes down the road, we’ll provide another update here.
Thanks to all of you who beta tested our app, provided feedback, and helped us build Cover into what it is today. We’re excited for this next chapter and can’t wait for you all to try out what’s next.

        Following our announcement around connecting the world from the sky with drones, satellites and lasers, I wanted to share some thoughts I wrote up on our approach here and our progress with Internet.org to date. These are rough thoughts and are not meant to be a formal technical paper, but it does get into a little more detail about what we're doing for those who are interested.-Mark Zuckerberg

        internetConnecting the world is one of the fundamental challenges of our time. To connect everyone in the world, we need to invent new technologies that can solve some of the physical barriers to connectivity. That’s why Facebook is investing in building technologies to deliver new types of connectivity on the ground, in the air and in space.
        Yesterday Facebook announced details of how its Connectivity Lab is working to connect the world from the sky with drones, satellites and lasers.
        Today, we’re sharing some thoughts from Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO, on the Connectivity Lab’s approach here and progress achieved with Internet.org to date.
        These are rough thoughts and are not meant to be a formal technical paper, but offer more detail for those who are interested.-Internet.org






        If internet access to everyone in the world is possible,it will be also helpful to me.
