Twitter goes talent shopping, acquires Bagcheck
Twitter has just acquired Bagcheck, a company that focuses on lists of interests, say Bagcheck’s founders Sam Pullara and Luke Wroblewski.
Bagcheck, which launched just 7 months ago, encourages users to put interest into “Bags” making lists.
We’ve acquired Bagcheck, and Sam Pullara, its co-founder and CTO will join us today
This acquisition seems to have the goal of getting the engineering half of the founding team. Pullara will be joining Twitter while Wroblewski is said to be working on his next big thing.
Twitter has this to say about Mr. Pullara:
Sam Pullara is a rare talent with a deep appreciation for connecting people with their interests, He’s a skilled product strategist, technologist and entrepreneur who has not only led large teams at Yahoo and Borland, but has co-founded successful ventures and spent time advising young startups as an Entrepreneur in Residence at Accel Venture Partners and Benchmark Capital.
Bagcheck will still be available in the future, says Pullara, but as every acquisition goes it may change eventually.
It’s too soon at this point to share any details on how and whether Bagcheck will be incorporated into Twitter,
Said a Twitter spokesperson.
