Magento is Now Part of Adobe

We are excited to announce that the acquisition of Magento is complete and Magento Commerce is now an Adobe company.

Now—more than ever—we are strategically positioned to deliver contextualized commerce experiences that will help each of our customers transform into experience businesses.

Magento has transformed the industry by making commerce technology open to everyone, available everywhere, and powered by the ingenuity of an incredible global community. As the first major open-source platform for commerce, Magento has given merchants unprecedented flexibility and choice to be creative, innovative, and to go to market in highly differentiated ways.

With Adobe, we can’t be more excited about our next chapter. We are thrilled to be joining a company that shares our passion for empowering each and every one of you to create experiences that reflect your vision and delight your customers. The combination of our leading commerce and digital experience capabilities puts us in a unique position. Whether your creative medium is pixels or code, we will empower people to transform their businesses without compromise.

Since announcing the acquisition only a few weeks ago, the response from our customers, partners and community members has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s been great to see the Adobe Developer Ecosystem team already engaging with the Magento community and participating in MeetMagento events, and we look forward to coming together at upcoming events, including MeetMagento and MagentoLive Europe.

Our team at Magento is thrilled to join Adobe, one of the most admired companies in the world.  We are all looking forward to what we’ll be able to achieve as one company and one global community.

Although today is a significant day for our company, you can expect that it is largely business as usual. We know you’re on this journey with us and we appreciate your continued support.

Together we will change the world!

You Can Now Access Every Tweet Posted Since 2006

On the heels of its premium Search Tweets API launch, Twitter has further extended historical access to Tweets with a new, premium full-archive search endpoint.

The ability to access Tweets from as early as 2006 increases the types of answers and insights at a person’s disposal. The insights can include what the world has been saying about a brand over the last decade, how has the conversation during major award shows shifted over the years and how do people respond to major technology product launches year over year.

At present, the full-archive search endpoint is available in beta. This new endpoint on the premium Search Tweets API provides access to every public Tweet currently on Twitter, all the way back to Co-Founder and CEO Jack Dorsey’s (@jack) first Tweet in 2006. This marks the first time that this data is available outside of the annual contracts and pricing commitments of Twitter enterprise APIs.
