Oh come ON. Look, I don’t even have a dog in this race, but Yahoo’s official Twitter account is right here. Scroll down to May 21. There is no such tweet. It does not exist. Tweets are ridiculously easy to fake.
Five minutes of googling about the acquisition turns up Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s statement on her tumblr (warning: flashing gif):
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same.
And Tumblr CEO David Karp’s statement on the staff tumblr (which, incidentally, includes a word not traditionally “safe for kids”):
Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission — to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve — certainly isn’t changing. But we’re elated to have the support of Yahoo! and their team who share our dream to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas. Tumblr gets better faster with more resources to draw from.
Can people PLEASE do their homework before panicking.
