Oneforty Gets Funded

Oneforty, a company creating an online clearinghouse of applications related to Twitter, is the first participant in the TechStars Boston summer startup incubator program to receive funding, according to a report last Friday from Boston Globe reporter Scott Kirsner. The San Francisco company, led by CEO Laura Fitton, has reportedly raised under $250,000 in funding from a group of angel investors that includes software veteran (and Xconomist) John Landry of Lead Dog Ventures. The startup’s name is a reference to the maximum number of characters allowed in a Twitter post.
