Terms were not announced for the deal, which was disclosed in a tweet by the Twitter engineering team and on the website of the Massachusetts-based Whetlab. Twitter did not comment on its plan for the service, but artificial intelligence can be used to determine the most relevant tweets and advertising messages for each user, or to better filter spam.

Whetlab, which was founded by computer scientists and neuroscientists from Harvard and Canadian universities, aims to help companies make better use of artificial intelligence, or machine learning.

With some 300 million active users, Twitter has been growing at a slower pace than some rival social networks and has yet to show a profit, despite creating new advertising products for the one-to-many messaging service.
At the same time Facebook has been investing heavily in artificial intelligence to also show more relevant items in user news feeds.
