@eelcojellema : Great product , but I have to say this : why not "We are closing down" generator app also , because it would generate waaaaaaay more traffic considering that 9/10 startups fail ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ .

@aalpanigrahi haha! Iโ€™ll consider when I have another two hours to spare. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (or maybe open source this, so others can have a go at it)

Hola PH. ๐Ÿ‘‹ Last Tuesday a total of 5 startup acquisitions happened. After reading some of these "exciting, we have been acquired" letters, I thought I could help the next acquired founders. So yesterday I spent about two hours hacking this together. A little something to make a bit of fun of those all too common letters from founders after they have been acquired. ๐Ÿ˜น Here is one I made for Startup Costs where I tell how excited I am to be acquired by Stripe. ๐Ÿ˜ Love to see by who you get acquired! Let me know if you like me to add anything (more emoji maybe?)? Some other newly added ones: - Chatfuel is acquired by Facebook ๐ŸŽ‰ - https://www.wehavebeenacquired.c... - Dofo is acquired by Godaddy ๐Ÿ”ฅ - https://www.wehavebeenacquired.c... - Muna is acquired by Indeed ๐ŸŽ‰ - https://www.wehavebeenacquired.c...

@eelcojellema Hi, is there any way to delete generated content? I accidently press generate button while my company is on acquiring process, but I can't find out how to delete it. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

@famasya yikes! What's the slug for it (can also message me here on PH). I'll delete it right away for you (or will at least not publish it to the 'hall of fame' right now).

Interesting. You could even take it a step further and use deep learning like a GAN or LSTM to generate the pages based on the text of other, real acquired company posts. This data source might help you out, as well as /r/subredditsimulator. https://ourincrediblejourney.tum...

@satvikpendem Good suggestionโ€”added to the list. Plenty of ideas, but had to keep it simple cause there's only so much one can do in two hours. ๐Ÿค“ Thanks for checking this out!
