I don't think I've ever seen a linkbait headline for an acquisition announcement before.

>Just kidding, we didn’t use Dogecoin. Or the other two. But they are moving to Colorado, so infer what you will.

In context of a serious business move, I am not keen on seeing tongue in cheek link bait titles for articles. Seems to be in poor taste IMO.

Congrats to the Cobook team. This seems like a logical fit.
