Whisper Systems Bought by Twitter

(LiveHacking.Com) – Whisper Systems, a mobile device security and privacy company, has been bought by Twitter. The company, which specialises in security for Android devices, announced that during to the transition it is taking all of its products and services offline.

However they assure their fans that the products will live on (under a Twitter brand??) and that they have some surprises in store once the transition is complete.

The question is, what do Twitter want with an Android security company. Twitter is available on a multitude of platforms and not just Android.

One interesting possibility is that Whisper System developed a product called RedPhone, which provides end-to-end encryption for phone calls. Could it be that Twitter want to joing the likes of Skype, Google and Yahoo in providing a VoIP service?
