I hadn't heard of this company until now, and I wonder who has.

Twitter is attempting to better appeal to the Android audience. On Monday, Twitter said it acquired Cover, an Android lock-screen app that automatically picks which apps are shown on the home screen depending on where you are.

The company is Twitter’s first Android-specific acquisition, a kind of investment that it has yet to make for iOS-specific companies. It suggests that the Twitter experience on Android could become distinct from other mobile platforms.

The announcement, made on Cover’s blog post, was short on details. A Twitter spokeswoman declined to disclose the terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.Twitter Acquires Android Lock Screen Maker, Cover [blogs.wsj.com]
