The idealab company Tweetup, which does bid-based and influence-ranked twitter search, has bought the #1 Twitter app on Android — Twidroid. Reflected in today’s 3.4.0 release, twidroid has been renamed to Twidroyd to avoid getting zapped with a lightsaber by Mr. George Lucas, who owns the trademarks to everything called “droid” due to a little something we call Star Wars. The interesting part of this deal/buyout is that Twidroyd will be bundled into “millions of phones” by 5 leading Android handset manufacturers. Looks pretty exciting, especially for the competition that will arise with Twitter’s official app that already is close #2. Check after the line break for the press release!
