PostUp, the social media platform founded by Internet entrepreneur Bill Gross, has acquired UberMedia, the Twitter client on the BlackBerry platform. PostUp is also changing its company name to UberMedia.
“Twitter has rapidly grown to be the most significant real-time communications medium on the planet,” said Bill Gross, CEO of UberMedia. “Our goal is to be the best partner to Twitter in enhancing the Twitter ecosystem, and to provide innovative ways for Twitter users to share and consume content.”
“When I first built UberTwitter, I never imagined it would grow the way it has, serving millions of users and really impacting the way people communicate,” said Paul McDonald, founder and CEO of UberTwitter. “Working closely with Twitter for the past couple of years has made me even more passionate about real time communication, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with Twitter as part of UberMedia.”
UberMedia is headquartered at Idealab in Pasadena, CA.
