Posterous to shut down on April 30th

Categorized News

When Twitter acquired the Posterous last year, they said it would be keeping the service alive, but now it’s time to turn off the lights. In a blog post today, Posterous announced that the service would be shutting down on April 30th so the team could “focus 100% of our efforts on Twitter.” At that time, users’ Posterous pages will exist.

Fortunately, the service released a backup tool last December, so if you’ve been documenting your life on the platform, you’ll have until the end of April to download your content. The post points out that both Squarespace and WordPress have tools that will let users easily move their Posterous content over to either service.
