Twitter has acquired Bluefin Labs, a social TV analytics company that was founded in 2008, sources say.

Although we don't know the exact acquisition price, we were told this is Twitter's biggest acquisition to date.

Twitter's move into social TV makes a lot of sense. It hired a Head of TV last fall and there's a strong correlation between people watching shows and tweeting about them.
