Comments moved to https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20167106, which was posted earlier and has a bit more information than the press release.

This was posted "one hour ago" while item you linked in the comment is "32 minutes ago" - unless time flows differently for you, the other is not earlier.

However, the other is not a press release. So ... whatever.

It was posted 4 hours ago. Timestamps are adjusted by the second-chance lobber; see https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19774614 and https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11662380. You can think of the modified timestamp as the resubmission time, though it's a bit more complicated than that.

The best way to see which came first is to look at the post IDs: 20167106 < 20169125. Or, look at pages other than the front page or /item. For example: https://news.ycombinator.com/submitted?id=cdepman. Those always show the original timestamp.

Sorry for the confusion, but it's the only way we've found to balance the various concerns that apply there.

English press release: https://scoot.co/stories/bird-acquires-scoot/

Edit: sorry, this should have been the link for the story. Would a mod mind swapping out the post's link?
