Automattic buys Tumblr

It was only a few years ago Tumblr was worth $1.3 billion and rumors say Automattic will acquire it for as little as $3 million. I used it for a few years from maybe 2009 through 2014. I closed the account soon after Yahoo acquired it.

I’ve found social media platforms to be increasingly worrying as they’ve started to double down on trackers. Which is why I comment and syndicate my thoughts out rather than share them natively to whatever platform I’m using.
