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.
