By purchasing giphy I guess Facebook siezed the memes of production

Giphy currently has built-in integrations to Twitter, iMessage, Mailchimp, Signal, Slack, Snapchat, Telegram, TikTok, and I know I'm missing a bunch others. That's a disturbing data lake they are pulling from. https://t.co/4FT9ZS68gy

It didn’t take long for Facebook to ruin Giphy. pic.twitter.com/4bXyC6ZWEe

1/5 Seems like the Giphy deal is strategically great for FB and probably gave Giphy the lifeline it needed.
FB gets valuable intelligence - Giphy is embedded into many top apps and the SDK requires disclosing user deviceIDs.
What? You thought they bought it for the gifs?

Facebook’s acquisition of GIPHY is yet another attempt to dominate the market & taunt our competition laws. Antitrust enforcers at the DOJ & FTC must stand up & make sure that the COVID-19 pandemic is not a pretense for corporate behemoths to prey on struggling startups. https://t.co/UqKkHCPUvp
