Automattic (Wordpress.com) has purchased Tumblr
"Mr. Mullenweg said his company intends to maintain the existing policy that bans adult content"
@Gargron then what's the point of paying for it
@Almafeta @Gargron At the very least, buying out Wordpress' biggest direct competitor.
@espectalll @Gargron ah, that makes sense. Probably going after Tumblr not for the content but their custom domain+user friendly CMS business.
@Almafeta @Gargron well, and the fact that it still has an userbase, one which has no reason to switch over to Wordpress because it's not even the same thing
@Almafeta @espectalll @Gargron Ironically, Wordpress, which started as a blogging platform, is now a rubbish blogging platform. Tumblr is still good once you strip away the crappy so-called “improvements” AOL & Yahoo made.
