Posterous, the micro blog and social network acquired by Twitter, will be shutting down on April 30.
The announcement was posted by CEO and Founder Sachin Agarwal on the official Posterous wall. He stated that since being acquired, they had continued to make it easier for people to share their thoughts and images, and that they will now do that 100% via Twitter.
Posterous started in 2008 and currently boasts about 4 million users. When the platform was acquired by Twitter last year, Agarwal stated that they would provide users with plenty of notice if there were going to be any major changes. Turns out those statements were rather prophetic.
