Posterous shutting down Posterous, the blogging platform founded in 2008 and then acquired by Twitter last year, will be shutting down on April 30th.
The company made the announcement this week via a blog post.

Reads the post:
Posterous launched in 2008. Our mission was to make it easier to share photos and connect with your social networks. Since joining Twitter almost one year ago, we've been able to continue that journey, building features to help you discover and share what's happening in the world on an even larger scale.

On April 30th, we will turn off posterous.com and our mobile apps in order to focus 100% of our efforts on Twitter. This means that as of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit.

Right now and over the next couple months until April 30th, you can download all of your Posterous Spaces including your photos, videos, and documents.


Twitter will keep the company's talent group of employees for work in other sectors.

"We'd like to thank the millions of Posterous users who have supported us on our incredible journey," CEO Sachin Agarwal added. "We hope to provide you with as easy a transition as possible, and look forward to seeing you on Twitter."
