Posterous, a popular hosted blogging platform, has been acquired by Twitter. The team behind Posterous assures that the service will not be disrupted, but will give “ample notice if [they] make any changes to the service,” and Sachin Agarwal (Posterous founder and CEO) is now a Product Manager for Twitter. It is not yet clear if Twitter intends to make use of the Posterous service or if this acquisition was intended to just bring the talent behind Posterous to Twitter’s ever-growing platform.
If you’re concerned about the future of your Posterous Space, it’s not too late to switch to a self-hosted WordPress installation (where you have full control over your content) with this importer. If you prefer a hosted environment, like Posterous, you can move to WordPress.com following this handy guide.
