Traffic Think Tank acquired by SEMRush

Traffic Think Tank — an early LaunchPass customer that used the platform to launch its expert marketing community on Slack — has been acquired by SEMRush. We’re proud to have helped TTT along its journey and are super excited to see what lies ahead for them! Learn more about Traffic Think Tank, SEMRush, and the acquisition here.

Twitter lays off more of its workforce

Twitter’s problems continue to pile up, with the company reportedly cutting an additional 10 percent of its workforce in late February. Product engineers, data scientists, and engineers working on machine learning were all hit, according to a New York Times report.
