"Halloween is always a surreal holiday for me, because on Halloween 2006, we sold Reddit to Conde Nast," Ohanian tweeted Sunday, the day after Halloween.
For one thing, Ohanian confirmed the amount for which publishing company Conde Nast paid for Reddit in 2006: $10 million.
But Ohanian tweeted that, at the time, it was his mom's illness that "weighed on me the most."
"They did diligence on a potential acquisition of Reddit but didn't want to compete with Conde Nast's offer, so they passed," Ohanian tweeted.
After Reddit sold to Conde Nast, Ohanian, then 23 years old, stayed on for three years.
