CNN Money: “NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Twitter has acquired TweetDeck, an application for organizing the display of tweets, for more than $40 million in a mix of cash and stock, according to sources close to the deal.”
I’m not so sure I’d have taken stock as part of that deal, unless it was a very small percentage. 80/20 maybe.
