From where I sit, the good people at Twitter have changed their minds about a "vision for making sharing simpler," as Posterous staff claimed when the former acquired the latter last March. Now comes the world that Twitter is shutting down Posterous. Presumably they will be focusing their efforts to make Twitter a photo sharing site (or maybe to simply crush Twitpic by clamping down on sharing). There was a time when Posterous and Tumblr were vying to replace Blogger and WordPress. Now Tumblr stands alone and, if you ask me, in a much better position than Twitter.
