Twitter agrees deal for anti-malware firm

Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn

Twitter has completed its second acquisition in just under a week, according to an article published by New Media Age.

Following the purchase of Summify, the micro-blogging site has now purchased Dasient, an anti-malware firm.

As part of the deal, Dasient will be fully integrated into the platform - popular amongst social media marketing professionals; although it isn't yet clear what type of role the anti-malware firm will play at the social media site.

A blog post, published on Dasient's blog, read: "By joining Twitter, Dasient will be able to apply its technology and team to the world's largest real-time information network."

Dasient primarily work on solving security problems created by malware. The company also launched an "anti-malvertising" service - designed to protect advertising networks and publishers from malicious adverts - back in 2010.

Twitter is yet to comment on the acquisition but the deal is thought to be effective immediately; while the financial terms of the deal have also yet to have been disclosed.
