Twitter acquires Vancouver startup Dabble DB to develop real-time analytics dashboard

dabble dbEarlier this year, Twitter acquired Dabble DB, a startup founded in Vancouver.

Expanding upon Dabble's efforts, the explosively trendy social networking site has plans to develop a real-time analytics dashboard. It will be available for free to a limited number of beta testers toward the end of this year.

The big questions involve access and money: Will all users be able to access the final product, or only companies? Will it be free for everyone? Or perhaps no one, as Twitter is aiming to monetize ASAP?

Time tells all!
