WordPress is a content management system and publishing platform originally released in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. The platform is open source, but has a strong commercial offering through Automattic, of which Matt Mullenweg is the CEO.

Around early 2023, Mullenweg stated that Automattic was interested in adopting the ActivityPub protocol, and integrating it into both WordPress and Tumblr. Automattic currently sponsors the development of a plugin, ActivityPub-WordPress, which is publicly available to any site running WordPress.
