Twitter acquires Dasient
Twitter has made another good acquisition… Dasient.
Dasient is a popular online security platform that checks websites and links for malware content.
The company has been catering to advertising networks and web publishers for the last couple of years by helping them detect malware content.
Dasient would come very handy to Twitter which is a popular way of sharing web links with friends and family.
If any service needs solid detection of spam and malware spread through online links, it is Twitter.
The company is set to launch a self-serve advertising platform and Dasient would be very important in making sure that Twitter does not end up broadcasting ads that send their users to the dark side on the internet!
