The micro blogging site Twitter has taken over the blogging site, Posterous. According to sources, it seems that Twitter may have been going after the talent behind the site, rather than the actual site itself as the development team have been welcomed into the Twitter fold with open arms.
It is not known how much Twitter have paid for the site, whatever it is it must have been worth it, because they have the team who are experienced in the field of sharing content around the internet, which is something that Twitter is very interested in.
Here is what Twitter had to say about the deal on the official Twitter blog;
Today we are welcoming a very talented group from Posterous to Twitter. This team has built an innovative product that makes sharing across the web and mobile devices simple—a goal we share. Posterous engineers, product managers and others will join our teams working on several key initiatives that will make Twitter even better.
