Say GoodBye To "I Want Sandy" and "Stikkit"

Twitter has acquired I Want Sandy and Stikkit and both sites will be closed down as of December 8th, 2008.

As I prepared posts for Modern Media Mom, one of the first posts I started writing was about I Want Sandy. It is a great organizational tool. Simple to use and efficient.

I hadn’t expected to be writing a post about the end of this amazing site, but based on the announcement posted by site engineer and developer, Rael Dornfest, there is a chance that it’s not the end of the concept:

“While the company and services will be shutting down, Stikkit and Sandy’s DNA will live on; the intellectual property behind both has been acquired by Twitter, Inc [http://twitter.com]. While Twitter has no immediate plans to incorporate Sandy or Stikkit’s feature sets into its core product, those who know our apps well may notice familiar-feeling bits and bobs appearing in your Twitter experience.”
