CoTweet, a Web-based application, will retain its name and office in San Francisco. Its seven full-time employees will be integrated into ExactTarget's company structure. CoTweet CEO Jessie Engle will report to ExactTarget CEO Scott Dorsey.

CoTweet clients include Whole FoodsStarbucks and Coca-Cola. There is some client overlap between the two companies.
