The number of companies in the Twitter ecosystem keeps
contracting. But not for a necessarily bad reason, but because
they keep getting purchased. And what’s crazy is that it’s
largely one person who has been buying them up: Bill Gross.
We’ve just learned that his company, now called UberMedia, has
just acquired TweetDeck.
We’re hearing that the deal, which happened recently, was in the
$25 - $30 million range. And this is clearly the largest deal
they’ve done yet as TweetDeck is the largest Twitter client
outside of Twitter’s own properties.
Close, except that UberMedia did not buy TweetDeck.
