Is Posterous doomed now that Twitter has them?

Just like poor old TweetDeck I fear that Twitter's recent acquisition of Posterous spells doom for the service. I have begun to look elsewhere for my Posterous powered sites. Are my fears warranted?

To me the question is does "elsewhere" come with the same functionality?

The early signs are no. Twitter is keeping Posterous up and running, at least for the time being, but its staff is being redeployed on other projects.

This is the scary part:
"but its staff is being redeployed on other projects."

Yikes. That's not a good sign. They did the same for TweetDeck apparently. What emerged was a completely different, inferior product.

Posterous has some functionality for domains that I preferred over Tumblr, the only real alternative when I set the sites up. Any other suggestions from WebmasterWorld members?
