Twitter acquires #Posterous [my thoughts]

March 13, 2012

This is the ‘bestest thing’ that could have happened to Posterous. Now that both the services would become one in the coming days I feel that the tweeps and Posterous users would benefit. Twitter would bring more users to Posterous.

I always found Posterous to be better than Tumblr, in fact I started this blog on Posterous before moving here. And it still amuses what an email can do. The best blogging platform that is out there for the lay people who aren’t much comfortable with HTML coding. I moved to WP because I wanted HTML editing and Windows Live Writer doesn’t support Posterous, needs a plug-in.

Few things ideas that I can think of is:

  1. Long tweets, images from twitpic, yfrog, etc., videos uploaded to twitter can automatically converted to posts on Posterous.
  2. Followers of users of both services can be merged, tackles Tumblr.
  3. Something like a fan page can be developed to tackle Facebook.

Pour in your suggestions in the comments.
