Twitter just announced it's mobile app development team, Fabric, is to be acquired by Google.
Google’s commitment to building mobile developer tools is a strong match for these products, customers, and team.

While we have found a new home for Fabric, developers remain important to Twitter. We are committed to continuing to invest in our public APIs, our Publisher Platform products including Twitter Kit and TweetDeck, our Ads API, MoPub, and Gnip.

Is this the beginning of the fire sale?

I was thinking that myself, and wonder if it opens the door for other connections between Google and Twitter, leading to a possible acquisition.
