Recently in September, Twitpic founder and CEO Noah Everett announced that Twitpic will be shutting down over copyright claims by Twitter. After the hopes of Twitpic being acquired and the service will live on, Noah once again announced that they were unable to find acquirer. In his last statement, Noah stated that Twitpic will be shutting down on 25th October.
We weren’t able to find a way to keep Twitpic independent. However, I’m happy to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to give them the Twitpic domain and photo archive, thus keeping the photos and links alive for the time being. Twitter shares our goal of protecting our users and this data. Also, since Twitpic’s user base consists of Twitter users, it makes sense to keep this data with Twitter.
This marks end of the photo sharing platform Twitpic which has been alive since 2008 and we bid farewell to it.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this.
