Zusätzlich hat TweetUp Twidroid, den ebenfalls von Marban entwickelten Twitter-Client für Android, gekauft. TechCrunch zu den Details:
Twidroid and popurls weren’t incorporated as such – they were operated by a startup called tomatic, founded by Austrian serial entrepreneur Thomas Marban. The acquisition represents another score for Marban in a series of 3 – he has now sold all three of his most recent ventures, the longest one he held on to being software company Celum, which was acquired back in 2007 after he co-founded it in 1998.
Judging from his already updated personal website, he’ll serve as an advisor to Idealab going forward.
