Twitter acquires Slack-like communications app Quill

Twitter acquired the Slack-like messaging app Quill for an undisclosed amount to improve efficient messaging communication.

Quill is a messaging app for collaboration and communication with teams. It will help Twitter improve its direct messaging tool and make it more useful.

In a tweet thread announcing the deal, Nick Caldwell, general manager for Core Tech on Twitter, described Quill as a more conscious way of communicating.

“We bring their experience and creativity to Twitter as we work to make messaging tools like DMs a more useful and expressive way to entertain people about the service,” noted Caldwell.

Quill will be closed, but his team will join Twitter and users who wish to export their team message history, which will be available through December 11 at 1:00 p.m. PT.

“We founded Quill with the aim of increasing the quality of human communication. We believe the tools we use to communicate today are not the best. Together with Twitter, we will continue to pursue our original goal, online communication, to be more thoughtful and more effective for everyone, “Quill noted in a blog post.

Meanwhile, new Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said his top priority in the new role will be to improve the way the company runs and streamline the way the microblogging platform works.

Agrawal, who made his first appearance at the Barclays technology conference since replacing Jack Dorsey, said the company “previously operated in a functional structure where we had a single engineering organization, design research organization, and product teams, which were anchored in it “. . ”

The new Twitter CEO has already started restructuring the company and two senior executives have already resigned as part of the reorganization plan.
