Smallthought Systems, the group behind Dabble DB, the easy-to-use online database system and Trendly, the exploration tool built on top of Google Analytics data, was acquired by Twitter last week:

Avi, Ben, Luke and I will be moving down to San Francisco this fall to work in Twitter's great downtown offices. We'll certainly miss everyone we're leaving behind, but at the same time we're excited about a new adventure. One great consequence of this is that the four of us will finally all live and work out of the same city — that has never happened before!

On Smallthought's side of the table, they're joining a great company with a huge, unique, and exciting dataset i.e. billions of tweets. On Twitter's side of the table, they're getting a great team who knows data and how to help people make use of it. So it's great news all around.
