Washington: Social networking website Tumblr`s founder David Karp has reportedly called microblogging site Twitter`s display of number of followers for every tweet as `gross`.
According to the New York Post, Karp slammed Twitter for over emphasizing on statistics related to the number of followers adding that Tumblr is not defined by the people one knows, but the kind of stuff that people love.
Internet Corporation Yahoo recently acquired Tumblr for a staggering 1.1 billion dollars and promising that it will be functional as a separate business.
Karp said that at Tumblr a lot of care is taken to keep the environment positive and free of jerks giving nasty remarks on someone`s hard work as it doesn`t allow for drive-by nastiness.
He further said that at the recently acquired Tumblr is a welcoming space where `an aspiring kid` can put up photos and creatives can place their award-winning campaigns, the report added.
