Twitter Buys Bagcheck

8/9/11

Bagcheck, a site where consumers can list and discuss their favorite personal gear and other products, has been purchased by San Francisco-based social media giant Twitter, according to a blog post on the Bagcheck site. Bagcheck co-founder and Yahoo alum Sam Pullara has joined Twitter’s enginering team and will continue to maintain the Bagcheck site, at least for now, according to the post. Co-founder Luke Wroblewski has not joined Twitter. Bagcheck raised venture funding from Sutter Hill Ventures and Morado Ventures as well as individual investors Jonathan Katzman and Peter Fenton.
