Posterous has been bought by Twitter, and now the 36 employees of Posterous also work for Twitter. This means that the site may or may not close down, so keep a look out if you blog there. If it does shut down the Internet will lose another powerful blogging platform, that easily let you update all of your blogs across the web, which was one of my favorite parts. Now I will have to do them one by one manually.
Will miss you Posterous! A lot!

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
