The opportunities in front of Twitter are exciting, and we couldn’t be happier about bringing our team’s expertise to a product that reaches hundreds of millions of users around the globe. Plus, the people at Twitter are genuinely nice folks who share our vision for making sharing simpler.

Did I bet on the right horse by being a faithful Posterous user instead of using Tumblr, or will Posterous go the way of the Dodo and declared defeat in the blogging platform war and this is yet another talent acquisition that will help the team keep a paycheck while killing a great product?

Let’s hope for the former and that Twitter will expand it’s product offerings by integrating Posterous Spaces into their infrastructure.
