Posterous is Joining the Flock at Twitter

Big news: Posterous has been acquired by Twitter!

The opportunities in front of Twitter are exciting, and we couldn???t be happier about bringing our team???s expertise to a product that reaches hundreds of millions of users around the globe. Plus, the people at Twitter are genuinely nice folks who share our vision for making sharing simpler.

Posterous Spaces will remain up and running without disruption. We???ll give users ample notice if we make any changes to the service. For users who would like to back up their content or move to another service, we???ll share clear instructions for doing so in the coming weeks.

You can find more information answers to other questions you may have here.

Finally, we???d like to offer thanks to all of our users, especially those who have been with Posterous since day one. The last four years have been an amazing journey. Your encouragement, praise and criticism have made us better.  Thanks for that. We look forward to building great things for you over at Twitter.

By now you have probably heard the news; Twitter has purchased Posterous. If you read through the FAQ section, there is more than one statement about notifications and instructions on moving your blog. To me and others, this means that eventually Posterous will cease to exist. That is a shame. While I support companies growing and buying other companies that compliment their brand; it’s sad to see growing and thriving technologies cease when this happens.
