Posterous Is Shutting Down On April 30th

Posted Feb 16, 2013

Posterous was acquired by Twitter in March 2012.  Twitter has placed the Posterous team in various positions in their company.  Posterous will be officially shutting down on April 30th.  Posterous co-founder Garry Tan is launching a new website called Posthaven, which will not be shut down at all.

I?m teaming up with another cofounder of Posterous, Brett Gibson, and we are taking a pledge to keeping the URLs online forever. It?s $5 a month and will have all of the ease of use and power of Posterous. It?s just the two of us and we?re coding it in our bedrooms right now.

Posthaven will not raise any funding and Tan vows to make the service available to users “forever.”  Posterous is going to let you download all of your Posterous Spaces including photos, videos, and documents by April 30th.
