Automattic Acquires Tumblr Plans To Rebuild The Backend Powered By WordPress

Recently WordPress Tavern had a post about Automattic acquiring Tumblr called: Automattic Acquires Tumblr Plans To Rebuild The Backend Powered By WordPress.

I was not expecting that at all, I am not sure if this was a good idea or not to acquire a dying brand, but I am curious to see what happens.

Automattic owns WordPress and WordPress.com et cetera, Tumblr was one of its competitors, and so this should be interesting regardless of whether it fails or not.

The end,
