Pixiv Just Sold Pawoo

Here's a quick Google Translate of relevant portion of the notice I got in my Pawoo account.

Pixiv Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Shingo Kunieda) has a Mastodon instance "Pawoo" operated on December 2, 2019. Crossgate Corporation (Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture, Russell Co., Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Tatsuya Yonekawa) took over the operation.  With the transfer, the operating company of "Pawoo” will be changed to Crossgate Co., Ltd. and Russell Co., Ltd. from December 2, 2019. "Pawoo” will continue to be operated as an independent site by Crossgate Inc. and Russell Inc. You can continue to use your current account.  We thank you for your continued patronage of "Pawoo” at our company, and even after the operating company has been changed to Crossgate Co., Ltd. and Russell Co., Ltd., we will continue to show off "Pawoo” as before. Thank you very much.

I have no idea what, if anything, that bodes for Pixiv (or Pawoo) or anything about Crossgate incorporated or Russell incorporated, the two (!?) companies that will be running Pawoo from now on.
