Posterous was ninja sold to Twitter early in 2012. That started the countdown to when (not really if) it would be shut down. That day has come: Posterous will turn off on April 30. This quiet ending stands in contrast headier days when Posterous had an import campaign for "dying" platforms...such as Tumblr--but now Tumblr's still around and Posterous is going away. (Of course, Tumblr still needs to figure out how to make money, too.)

The news had the original founders scrambling to finish getting their next project ready--a replacement called Posthaven that pledges to stick around forever. Of course, in order to do so, it's a paid only service.
