Blogging and sharing company Posterous has announced via its company blog that it has been snagged by Twitter in an apparent ‘acqui-hire’, with Twitter interested mostly in the people, not the product. Various Posterous engineers, product managers and more will join the Twitter team and the existing ‘Spaces’ that users have will remain up and running for now.

Well shit. Now I have to go find yet another platform for blogging ... I hate blogger, wordpress and tumbler ... any other suggestions?
