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.
Backup your Posterous Spaces NOW – if you have a Mac!

I have used posterous for a couple of different type of blogging. Like the 2 months i moved in with my atheist dying Mother .. to help her with her final days. She was well except for this notice of certain death. We did some healing.. it was goog. I used the evenings to email pray updates out to friends and family and I also saved their words often of encouragement to me in their replies. I have other blogs set up on Posterous… I sure hope nothing happens with this one. Thanks
