Twitter isn’t buying Fluther — but it is taking in the Q&A site’s staff. The company says that five of Fluther’s employees, including CEO Ben Finkel, are joining its staff, as it continues to build up its engineering and operations teams. As for Fluther, which had raised a round of funding last year from big-name backers including Marc Andreessen and claims more than one million visitors a month, it will continue to be kept up but won’t be further developed.

Can we expect a formal Q&A feature — a la Facebook Questions — to now launch on Twitter? Twitter only says that the Fluther employees will “focus on helping users discover the most relevant content on Twitter.”
