Twitter buys startup of a 21-year-old Austrian

Krause graduated from a higher technical college in Wiener Neustadt (Lower Austria) and then attended the University of Central Lancashire in Preston (England) in order to study software engineering. During his studies he already worked for software companies and “noticed that there is a major problem in publishing iPhone Apps.” He wanted “to write something to make this process extremely easy and quick”. His software reduces the entire process to a click, and everything takes place automatically within just a few minutes.

Krause began about one year ago and published the first version of the software after about three months. He made the whole thing an open source project, but also founded his company "Fastlane". He earned money by serving companies with special wishes and offering them customized solutions. After six months numerous companies used his program. Today about 15,000 users rely on his program every day.

"Then Twitter contacted me and offered to work together with me“, Krause said. They searched for a solution which would be mutually acceptable to both sides. As a result, “Fastlane” is now part of Twitter, and he can work full time on his project in San Francisco. However, the software remains an open source.
