MoPub + Twitter

Posted September 9, 2013 by | Filed under: Company News

Three years ago, Bryan, Nafis and I launched MoPub with a mission: to enable great content by powering advertising for the world’s mobile publishers. We had a firm belief that programmatic buying and a strong commitment to serve the publisher would enable the development of a new ads economy in mobile. Since that time, as our team has grown to nearly one hundred employees worldwide, our platform has grown to serve billions of mobile ads every month around the world on behalf of our publishers.

Today, I am excited to announce that MoPub has agreed to be acquired by Twitter. Like MoPub, Twitter has been “mobile first” since their inception, which makes our two companies a natural match.

It’s important to underscore that our commitment to you, the publisher, will not change. In fact, it will be strengthened. Twitter will invest in our core business and we will continue to build the tools and technology you need to better run your mobile advertising business.

In addition to investing in new capabilities for our publisher platform, we believe there are opportunities to bring better native advertising to the mobile ecosystem. With the support of the team and resources of Twitter, we’ll be able to move even more quickly towards the realization of our original vision.

We can’t wait to “join the flock” and continue to build incredible products for publishers. It’s been an amazing ride – and it’s just getting started. My deepest thanks to the MoPub team and everyone who has helped us along the way.

Yours,
Jim
CEO, MoPub
