Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reportedly made a stopover at Apple Park on Tuesday, addressing employees in the marketing department.

It’s not exactly clear what was discussed. However, it does suggest “strong ties” between Apple and the microblogging company.

Dorsey’s address was one of an “ongoing series” of selected speakers at Apple. As with Google, Apple often brings in interesting outside speakers to address employees. This could be about matters directly related to work, or more broadly about topics meant to entertain or educate.

The news was reported by Bloomberg. The publication notes that Dorsey’s presence is “indicative of [a] bond and existing collaboration” between Twitter and Apple.

Apple has promoted Twitter as an iOS app that’s coming to Mac later this year. This will be part of Project Calayst, after the original macOS version of Twitter was killed off early least year. Apple was additionally one of the first retailers to sell Square’s credit card reader. Square was another company co-founded by Dorsey.
