Twitter Inc. has announced its second annual developer conference, Twitter Flight, to be held in San Francisco on October 21. The event will enable the microblogging site to showcase new products, and present tools to the developers that build third-party Twitter apps. This comes as Twitter works to build its offline community - the number of people who view Twitter content without being directly logged in to the platform - and expand products for users and tools for advertisers. The company hasn't given an entire list of events, but said talks will focus on developing technical understanding of the Twitter platform, including back-end services and apps. Twitter also announced a new analytics tool on Wednesday called Answer Events that enables developers and advertisers to track specific actions and events of users in real time. Shares of Twitter were down 2.2% to $35.84 in recent trade.
