Twitter’s plans for CardSpring aren’t 100% clear. Onits blog, the company says that the team and technology at CardSpring will be a “great fit” for its approach towards the future of commerce, but actual details relating to whether the company or product will exist in the future aren’t spelled out.
On its website, CardSpring says it will “will continue to grow the adoption of our platform and work with our publisher, financial, and retail partners to create new, innovative commerce experiences for consumers.” Still, it’s not clear if that means that CardSpring as a brand and API will continue, or if it will simply be folded into existing Twitter commerce systems.
Twitter is actively working in the commerce space as a way to promote and deliver deals. In May, the company even introduced a way for users to add items to their Amazon shopping carts with a tweet.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
