Posterous Will Turn Off on April 30

One year ago I was spot on when Posterous got acquired by Twitter. My assumption was that Posterous wouldn’t last very long. We could see that already because development and innovation to the platform was zero. And now, one year later, one month after they finally released a backup tool, they resign the service.

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.

Thank God, me and a lot of others bailed out before that. I can only hope that they do indeed help the innovation over at Twitter.
