Postup acquires ubertwitter renames itself to ubermedia
Postup (now UberMedia) must be up to something as it has just acquired its second Twitter client. UberMedia recently acquired Echofon and has now announced it has acquired UberTwitter, the popular iPhone and Blackberry client maker. They have also announced they have changed their name to UberMedia which is the 3rd name change for the site which was originally called Tweetup but then changed its name to Postup when it added Facebook and linked in. the company has a new homepage that states:
UberMedia is the leading independent developer of applications and web-based services that make it easier for users to find, follow and communicate with others on Twitter and other social media platforms. The company is focused on driving innovation in user experiences across a range of online and mobile platforms. UberMedia also provides advertisers and brands with new ways to engage and communicate with consumers via Twitter through its family of apps.
In other words the company wants to run several apps that are complimentary, and in some cases competitive to exactly what Twitter does.
