Microblogging site Twitter has acquired social start-up Bagcheck for an undisclosed sum.
Bagcheck is a website where people collect and share lists or “bags” of products, hobbies and other things in categories such as photography, sports, cooking or computers.
People can share the products and talk about why they love certain items.
A spokesperson for Twitter told CNET the company wouldn't comment on its plans for Bagcheck, saying it is too soon to share any details on how and whether Bagcheck will be incorporated into Twitter.
Angel investor Sam Pullara co-founded Bagcheck with Luke Wroblewski. Pullara, who is joining Twitter's engineering team, is also a former entrepreneur in residence at Benchmark Capital, and former chief technologist at Yahoo.
Bagcheck will still be available online.
