Twitter has announced the purchase of startup Squad, which is developing an app of the same name for sharing a screen during a video call, TechCrunch reports with a link to the social network. The company did not disclose the amount of the transaction.

The company's co-founders, CEO Esther Crawford and CTO Ethan Sutin, as well as team members, will move to design, engineering, and Twitter's product division. Whether Twitter will add Squad functionality to its social network remains to be seen.

Since its founding in 2016, Squad has raised $7.2 million from Y Combinator, Halogen Ventures, First Round Capital, and others. According to Crunchbase, the company has another co-founder, Chris Messina. Before the Squad, Crawford and Soutine developed Molly, a bot that answers questions about people based on public social media posts.
