E-commerce giant Amazon has partnered with Dutch multinational food ordering and delivery company Grubhub in the US, a strategy by both companies to boost their respective businesses.

As part of the move, Amazon Prime subscribers in the US will get a free Grubhub Plus subscription for a year, a monthly subscription service that offers free food delivery on orders over $12 from participating restaurants. Grubhub normally charges $9.99 for a month for the subscription plan.

“Both Grubhub and Amazon have transformed people’s lives by providing them with unprecedented choice and convenience,” said Ariella Kurshan, Senior Vice President of Growth, Grubhub, in the announcement.

“I’m thrilled that new Grubhub diners from Amazon can get even more delivered to their door with their Prime membership,” he added.

The free deliveries associated with Grubhub Plus will now be available at various restaurants across more than 4,000 cities in the United States.

After one year, Grubhub will automatically start charging $9.99 a month for continued access.

Existing Grubhub Plus subscribers can still make use of the promotion, which will be applied at the start of their next billing cycle.

Twitter Testing 🧪 New CoTweets Feature For Co-Authored Tweets

Microblogging platform Twitter has started testing a new CoTweets feature that will allow two account holders to co-author a tweet and both to be tagged in a single tweet.

The new feature is reportedly now live for some users for a limited time after the microblogging platform started experimenting with the idea earlier this year.

Many Twitter users have already been testing the CoTweets feature. The experience allows the main tweet author to invite someone else to be tagged in the tweet and discuss the contents over a direct message (DM).

Accounts having access to the CoTweets feature will see it appear in the tweet composer as a pop-up that invites them to tweet together with CoTweets.

If you see this pop-up, you will be able to invite another Twitter account to share ownership of a tweet with them.

Once you share an invite with another user account to create a CoTweet, he/she will receive a request to either accept or decline the invite.

The requests can only be sent to those accounts you follow and are public.

Reddit Launches Blockchain-Based Collectible Avatars

Social discussion platform Reddit announced the launch of its blockchain-based collectible avatars or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that will soon be available for purchase on the platform.

The collectible avatars are designed by some of Reddit’s most passionate visual artists. The proceeds from the limited-edition collectible avatars will go to artists who have designed them.

While Reddit did not refer to the avatars as NFTs in its announcement; however, it added that blockchain technology remained a part of its long-term plans: “We see blockchain as one way to bring more empowerment and independence to communities on Reddit,” the company said.

Reddit says that the avatars can be stored and managed on its own blockchain wallet, Vault, which is currently used to earn blockchain-based community points and spend them on in-app features such as badges.

To purchase the collectibles, you don’t need an existing crypto wallet, as you can buy them with credit or debit cards.

The avatars will be available to buy on Reddit’s avatar builder page in the coming weeks.

Adaptive, a U.S-based automated financial management software platform built for construction companies, has raised $6.5 million in a seed funding round to simplify accounting for construction companies.

The funding was led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) along with participation from investment firms 3KVC, BoxGroup, Exponent, and Definition.

Executives from prominent fintech startups such as Airbase Inc., Brex Inc., and Ramp Corporation also participated in the round.

Founded in 2021, Adaptive’s artificial intelligence-powered platform automates bills, invoicing, and reporting, helping construction teams save time & money and help them grow.

The startup is tapping into recent advances in AI and document scanning technology to eliminate the majority of the day-to-day manual data entry work and provide real-time financial reporting.

The platform allows owners, accountants, and project managers to level up from simply staying on top of the books to proactively managing cash flow and growth.

Adaptive plans to use the funds to expand its platform’s focus beyond cost management to other tasks.
