At AndroidGuys, we’ve been long-time fans of Cover Lock Screen. It offers a customizable, beautiful lock screen replacement that other apps haven’t come close to matching. Things might change a bit around Cover headquarters as they announced today that they are acquired by Twitter.

In a press release earlier today, Cover explained their future plans to work with the social networking giant.

Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android. They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter.

The Cover team explains that the app will still be available in the Play Store while they focus their efforts on working closely with Twitter. They will of course give updates to their blog as to what exactly is happening with the partnership. And as for the details about the purchase, that’s about all we have so far.

What do you think this means for Cover? Let us know in the comments below!
