Twitter acquired the Breaker Social Radio app. The deal allows the Social Radio App team to join Twitter to promote public conversations throughout the service and participate in Twitter's new audio networking project, Twitter Spaces.

However, Breaker will be closed on January 15, 2021. The social radio app announced the takeover of their blog and explained why they thought their team was suitable for Twitter.

Breaker CEO (Erik Berlin) wrote that we are passionate about voice communication and we're inspired by the way Twitter enables public conversations between people around the world.

Breaker was founded in 2016. At the time, podcasts were still seen as audio sources, while the podcast app was seen as a productivity tool rather than a community experience, so it was launched.

Breaker helped change this perception by introducing an app where users can comment and comment on episodes and discover new podcasts by following friends and sharing their favorite shows on social media platforms.

The app team will join Twitter and focus on competitors for the Clubspace app and the Twitter Spaces product on Twitter.

Twitter Spaces allow users of the platform to use voice instead of text in chats in real time.

The new product entered the testing phase in December. Twitter is currently trying to troubleshoot technical and functional errors, as well as more complex issues arising from real-time audio hosting.

Breaker said: It will close apps and services created in the last few years in a matter of days and app users can export OPML files to transfer their subscriptions to another streaming app.

Breaker recommends Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, Overcast, Pocket Casts or Castro as alternatives.

The acquisition comes on the heels of other deals for podcast content in the past few weeks and months, including the $ 300 million acquisition of Stitcher by Amazon and Sirius without talking about any current Spotify. Content Transactions.
