Twitter acquired Highly Application
It seems that the Highly will be strangled
Twitter takes over the Highly app, Highly CEO Andrew Courter announces in a blog. The app team will help to further develop Twitter.
With Highly, users can select quotes from articles and share them with each other. The app is currently still available for iOS, Slack and as a browser plug-in.
Highly development is given a lower priority for the team. The appmaker has announced that the Highly iOS version and Slack app will disappear on April 26. Users’ accounts continue to exist.
In conversation with Techcrunch, Twitter confirms that it is indeed the intention that the team behind Highly develop functions for Twitter. It is not known whether Highly is supposed to disappear completely.
