Everything about the Black Magic's acquisition + May 2023 updates
Thanks for sharing, I appreciate your openness. It's really sad to see the downfall of many indie Twitter tools.
Thanks for sharing your story tony. The fact that they added a 5k/mo plan 1 month later is so maddening though… it’s an awesome that you moved on to build other products that will be even more successful in the end. One step back two steps forward 😀
Thanks for sharing your story Tony. I think you responded the best way you could based on the limited info and time you had. What I loved was how accountale and responsible you felt towards your customers... super commendable! 😊👍
One hell of a product you’ve built Tony! Glad to see it’s sunset but also excited on it’s new home and what’s in store for customers! 😃
This is a story with lessons for entrepreneurs in many industries. Thanks for sharing.
Its indeed very frustrating. Sorry for the bad part of the experience. But this is an amazing and inspiring story! Thank you! :)
They could have added a 5K plan together with the enterprise plan. Twitter announced it later by a month, and most independent developers stopped their products and moved on to another project. If the 5K plan had been announced earlier, at least within a week of announcing the enterprise plan, most of the products wouldn't have been shut down. Platform risk is indeed a problem. Let's see how Reddit is going to tackle this.
Tony, you are a true inspiration. Stay strong.
Thanks for sharing, Tony.
I hope TypingMind will be a success.
Platform risk is real.
Thanks for sharing Tony. I can feel the pain of not selling earlier. I got quite the same situation with my ecom business in 2021 😂 iOS 14 Update hit my biz hard then I had to sell it with 1/4 price.
Keep up the great job Tony!
Your fan from Saigon.
Thanks for sharing your story Tony. I have been following you from the early days when you were still working at Singapore.
Even though the outcome could have been different if you sold few months ago, but you should be proud to build a product that has PMF and was used by so many.
I wish you best of luck !
Thanks for sharing Tony- best of luck with your other businesses!
Hey Tony - thanks a lot for sharing and all of the transparency.
Really happy to hear that you're okay about the acquisition given the timeline of everything happening AND that previous $500k offer.
Keep up the amazing work - and looking forward to seeing TypingMind becoming the new MRR King :)
Thanks for sharing Tony. I never went through an acquisition process myself, but I am glad it went smoothly for you.
Wow Tony, this is an impressive journey! 🤩 It is really thought provoking how you bravely navigated this situation and made a decision that was best for both you and your customers. You have proven to be an amazing entrepreneur who isn't afraid to take risks and work diligently to strive for success. 🔥 I am excited to hear more about TypingMind.com and your upcoming plans. 🤗 All the best! 🙌
Keep up the good work Tony, you made the best decision at that point as business owner.
