Thrilled about the Posterous acquisition by Twitter

I’m so thrilled to share the exciting news of the Posterous acquisition by Twitter.

While my part of the Posterous journey was small, a little under a year, it was filled with amazing and fun people and tons of great and memorable experiences. During the last year we launched Posterous Spaces, grew the Posterous team and have seen more than 250% growth in our users and monthly traffic. And now I’m looking forward to the Posterous team continuing on to Twitter and doing amazing things there.

While everyone at Posterous was a rock star and contributed immensely towards Posterous’s success, the person who deserves the most credit for all of Posterous’s successes is Sachin (http://sachin.posterous.com). He is one of the smartest, hardest working and most passionate people that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and I can’t wait to see the next awesome thing that he’ll be building at Twitter. I wish him and the rest of the Posterous team the very best of luck!

As for me I decided not to join the rest of the team going to Twitter. Instead I’m super excited at the prospect of finally taking a break before I look for my next startup. You’ll probably find me skiing at Squaw and going on some long motorcycle rides before I figure out what I want to do next.

Posterous is Joining the Flock at Twitter – The Official Posterous Space

Big news: Posterous has been acquired by Twitter!

The opportunities in front of Twitter are exciting, and we couldn’t be happier about bringing our team’s expertise to a product that reaches hundreds of millions of users around the globe. Plus, the people at Twitter are genuinely nice folks who share our vision for making sharing simpler.

Posterous Spaces will remain up and running without disruption. We’ll give users ample notice if we make any changes to the service. For users who would like to back up their content or move to another service, we’ll share clear instructions for doing so in the coming weeks.

You can find more information answers to other questions you may have here.

Finally, we’d like to offer thanks to all of our users, especially those who have been with Posterous since day one. The last four years have been an amazing journey. Your encouragement, praise and criticism have made us better.  Thanks for that. We look forward to building great things for you over at Twitter.

Couldn’t have asked for a better exit for Posterous.

The world’s largest production bike

While there is no end to what you can do with a custom made engine, the Triumph Rocket III was built as the largest production bike at around 2300cc with a 141hp on a two wheel monster. However the folks at Carpenter Racing thought that this wasn’t enough so they made some engine modifications to add another 100hp bringing the total to 241hp. I saw the bike at this year’s International Motorcycle Show and have fallen in love with it. And after watching this  video from Triumph I’ve become a bigger fan of Triumph as well.
