Twitter, the social media service for people who like to keep things short, is getting a bit more wordy. But only a bit. They’ve announced their purchase of Posterous, a service that offers space for small blog posts with a user-friendly interface. Twitter indicated that Posterous Spaces would remain up and available, but that users who wished to export their content would receive instructions for that in the coming weeks. People with custom domains they purchased from Posterous will be receiving instructions from eNom (which is taking over the management of those domains) to help them access those accounts. Twitter talked about the purchase on their blog, while Posterous gave their statement on theirs.
Do you use Posterous? If so, will you be heading somewhere else, like Tumblr, or are you going to hang around for a while to see what happens? Let us know in the comments.
