It was announced today that Yahoo is selling Tumblr, which it bought for $1.1 billion in 2013… for “less than $3 million.”
I’m so happy. Guess all those kinky queerdo perverts were actually kind of important after all. Seriously the best news ever.
It’s still sad that it’s gone, but I’m glad they’ve suffered so much for what they did to it. It demonstrates how important our presence is to these platforms and it illustrates what happens when they pull the rug out from under us in order to try and sweep us all beneath it. We may never get it back the way it was, and I’ll miss it the way it was forever, but at least we’re seeing some justice for its murder. Please join me in gloating celebration.
