Julpan, the New York startup that’s barely more than a year old and analyzes social activity across the web, has been acquired by Twitter, the mega micro-messaging service. Terms of the transaction were not publicized. Ori Allon, who founded and served as CEO of Julpan, will remain on as director of engineering with Twitter.
I am very proud to announce that Julpan has been acquired by Twitter.
We founded Julpan more than a year ago. In that time we’ve created innovative, early-alpha-stage search technology that analyzes social activity across the Web to deliver fresh and relevant content to users.
Twitter houses an industry-leading engineering team that is tackling some of the Internet’s most interesting opportunities. With more than 230 million Tweets per day on every subject imaginable, Twitter gives us a chance to make an even greater contribution toward instantly bringing people closer to what is most meaningful to them. We look forward to joining forces with Twitter’s engineering team to explore how we can best integrate and optimize Julpan’s innovations.
I’d like to personally thank the talented engineers, architects and designers of Julpan. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people with whom to invent some of the world’s best social search technology.
Ori Allon, Director of Engineering, Twitter (former Founder & CEO of Julpan)
