George Kirikos who sought retweets as currency for his research efforts, set up a series of clues on a domain that sold last year that would chart in the top 10 for 2017 domain sales.
The domain is Purple.com, I was really the only one playing along with George, and discovered the mattress firm merged with Global Partner Acquisition Corp.
The details lie in the Edgar filings

Elliot Silver initially broke the news on Purple.com and then I added it to Wikipedia as he was looking for someone to update the page.
