Twitter acquired a startup for $22.8 million at some point between April and June of 2019, but did not disclose the name of the company in the filing. It appears to be Fabula AI, a London-based machine learning (ML) startup that builds tech to fight “fake news”
In a recent blog post, Twitter said that it acquired Fabula AI to help build out its AI/ML research group, and that “this strategic investment in graph deep learning research, technology and talent will be a key driver as we work to help people feel safe on Twitter and help them see relevant information.”
