Twitter has acquired blogging platform Posterous, and the latter’s engineers, product managers and other staff members will soon be joining the existing Twitter teams so they can “make Twitter even better”. In what very much appears to be a talent acquisition, existing Posterous bloggers should seriously consider moving their content to another blogger platform as soon as possible. While Twitter have given assurances that Posterous Spaces will remain up and running without disruption for now, reading between the lines in the various statements that have been made it’s fairly obvious that these services will not continue indefinitely, certainly as they are now.
Posterous , a blogging platform that embodies Tumblr’s simplicity, if not its stylishness, announced today it has been acquired by microblogging giant Twitter. Posterous announced the acquisition Monday in a blog post. For now, Posterous will remain the same and the “Spaces,” or blogs, you’ve created will still be active until future notice.
We’re super-excited to announce the launch of Posterous Spaces. It’s our brand new service for the Web, iPhone and Android that replaces the current service. Why did we create it? Simple – because we think you should be able to share online like you do in real life. That’s why you'll find Posterous Spaces has intuitive privacy controls that make it a breeze to share with the right people, every time. Whether you want to create a public blog, a private place to share family vacation photos or start a group for your classmates to stay in touch, you can create a Space for it.
