Appropriately, TenXer CEO Jeff Ma announced the merger via Twitter on Thursday morning.

Founded in 2012, the San Francisco-based company produces data analytics and services tools for engineers.

TenXer touts on its website that its methods save both time and money by utilizing a company's existing data and tools stemming from sources such as Pivotal Tracker and GitHub for insights and feedback about performance.

Twitter has made a number of data and engineering-geared acquisitions over the last few years, including mobile app crash-reporting company Crashlytics in 2012 as well as big data and text mining visualization engine Lucky Sort in 2013, among others.

But TenXer appears to fit slightly outside the mold. Multiple reports suggest the new resources will be used for supporting and improving Twitter's internal engineering team rather than for providing new data tools to corporate customers and brands on the micro-blogging platform.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
