Posterous, the simple blogging service has been acquired by Twitter. Posterous started as a simple way to post content via email, web or mobile apps. Posterous competed initially with Tumblr but eventually lost the game to Tumblr and later shifted focus to Spaces.
Now the big question is what happens with those Spaces users created with Posterous. Both companies claim that Spaces will remain up for now but is not clear whether Twitter will shutdown them or not after some time.
Twitter blog also stated the same, users will be notified if Twitter decides to shutdown the service. Twitter blog talks about the talent that is coming with the Posterous acquisition rather than the product itself. That means Twitter is not really interested in the product, and in the near future it may shut down with out hesitation. Twitter might integrate some features of Posterous in to twitter.
If you are using Posterous Spaces what do you think of this develoment, and will you move to some other service like Tumblr.
I am searching for tools that will export spaces from Posterous to Tumblr or Wordress, let me know if any one of you know such a tool.
