The ‘Breaker’ is one of the most famous podcasting apps available for iOS and Android. The breaking news is that the social media giant Twitter has purchased the Breaker app. Before proceeding further, I would like to explain about Podcast for those who don’t know about it. We can simply define Podcast as an episodic series of spoken word digital audio files that anyone can download to a personal device for feasible listening.
Twitter Acquires Social Podcasting App ‘Breaker’
In a recent announcement, Twitter told that it had acquired Breaker to build the company’s new audio-based networking project, the ‘Twitter Spaces’. According to a source, as per the new acquisition deal, Breaker’s app will stop working on the 15th of January, 2021 and afterwards, its team will join Twitter.
The Breaker is a famous podcast app which was founded back in 2016 by CEO Erik Berlin. The ‘Breaker’ altered the perception of podcast apps by transforming it into a social space that provides its user with the opportunity to create communities and find new experiences.
