The omnipotent presence known as Twitter has reached out and added another member to its flock. This time it’s blogging platform Posterous, which at last check had over 15 million registered users.
The acquisition was confirmed on both Twitter and Posterous’ sites, with a blog post going up on Twitter’s official blog as follows:
“Today we are welcoming a very talented group from Posterous to Twitter. This team has built an innovative product that makes sharing across the web and mobile devices simple—a goal we share. Posterous engineers, product managers and others will join our teams working on several key initiatives that will make Twitter even better.”
Founder and CEO Sachin Agarwal said that “This is one of the greatest days of my entire life”, which needs little translation. The site’s services will continue as normal, but it’s unclear what this acquisition means yet to the site’s vast userbase.
