"We are proud of what the team has accomplished" says Verizon Media CEO, after wasting $1,097 million to ruin a social media network
@dickmandrake To be fair, they didn't waste that because they didn't buy Tumblr at that price in the first place.
They merely knocked a billion or so off the value in months.
@Vordus Technically you're right because it was Yahoo! who bought it (before they were themselves bought by Verizon)
@dickmandrake Basically, it's the equivalent of buying a house, finding an original da Vinci, and then having the little old lady who 'restored' the Ecce Homo Fresco prep it for display before ultimately deciding to sell it.
