It seems that Twitter is all geared up for taking over businesses. After purchasing a cryptography startup in November 2011, Twitter has taken another step in the same direction.

The micro-blogging social networking website, Twitter has recently acquired Dasient, a provider of anti-malware and web security suite. The plans are to use the expertise of Dasient and apply its technology and team to Twitter to the next level. The move will focus more upon the security of Twitter.

“Over the last year, we have been very active in securing the ads and content of the some of the industry’s largest ad networks and web sites,” Neil Daswani from Dasient said.
