Twitter Acquires Posterous – good timing for me

If you didn’t read.. Twitter bought up Posterous today.  I gotta say.. it was quite good timing on my part.  Yesterday I started migrating off of Posterous back to my own WordPress blog.

Don’t get me wrong, Posterous was great.  I was always torn between running my own WordPress instance, Tumblr and Posterous.  In the end.. for a couple years I kept Posterous around.  The ability to email in your posts was quite nice.   I finally decided that more control is what I wanted.. and so I am in the process of moving back to WordPress.

One small beef with Posterous?   I couldn’t easily export my data out.  In this day and age that is a complete FAIL!  Frustrated to say the least.   Oh well.. live and learn.
