Twitter has announced it will soon shut down Posterous by the end of April this year. Posterous is a blogging and note-sharing service, which the social networking site acquired March 2012.
The Posterous team will work on Twitter projects after the service is shutdown.
Posterous founder and CEO, Sachin Agarwal said that on 30 April 2013 the company will turn off posterous.com and its mobile apps to focus efforts on Twitter.
"This means that as of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit," Agarwal said.
"Right now and over the next couple months until April 30th, you can download all of your Posterous Spaces including your photos, videos, and documents."
Posterous launched in 2008, and allows users to post blogs,, share photos and notes as well as allows users to backup their data through a special page.
