HootSuite Buys Android Developer Swift App

Twitter client HootSuite, which recently raised $1.9 million in funding, has now made an acquisition, buying up Android app developer Swift App. HootSuite says that Swift App was behind the development of HootSuite’s own Android app, which was released last week. The company says the acquisition “means quicker development for the growing Android market.”
HootSuite’s dashboard — which is also available via the web and an app on the iPhone — lets multiple people manage a single (or multiple) Twitter accounts and drives about 3.5 percent of all Tweets, according to Twitstat. Financial details of the deal were not released.
