Twitter buys blog site Posterous
Global - Twitter has acquired blogging platform Posterous, the micro-blogging giant posted on their official blog yesterday.
Both teams will work together on several key initiatives to better the Twitter experience. No further details were shared on what these initiatives will be.
Posterous competes with the likes of Tumblr.
Twitter posted that the four-year old blogging site "has built an innovative product that makes sharing across the web and mobile devices simple", adding that it's a goal both sides share.
On their official blog, Posterous informed users that its site Posterous Spaces will "remain up and without disruption", while users will be given sufficient notice time for any changes.
The Posterous team added that instructions will be up for users who choose to back up their content or move to another service.
This marks Twitter's another acquisition in the past six months after it bought Whisper Systems late last year.
