Twitter acquires mobile-app crash analyzer Crashlytics

The crash analytics company already counts Twitter as a customer

Crashlytics, a year-old vendor of crash analytics for iPhone and iPad apps, says it has been acquired by Twitter.

"Today, we're excited to announce: we're merging with Twitter to take our platform to an entirely new level," Wayne Chang, co-founder of Crashlytics, wrote in a post on his company's blog.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and Crashlytics and Twitter did not respond to requests for comment.

Crashlytics produces a software package that allows developers to collect and analyze data each time their apps crash on iOS devices. The mobile apps incorporate a piece of code from Crashlytics that, in the event of a crash, collects data and then sends it to a server for analysis.

"Developers gain instant visibility into the precise line of code that caused a crash, enabling them to more easily fix issues," Chang wrote.

Twitter already uses the company's software on its main app and on the new Vine video messaging application. Other customers include Yelp, Kayak, TaskRabbit, Square and Waze.

The acquisition will not change any of those relationships, the company said.

An Android version of the Crashlytics platform is promised soon.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
