First off I want to say thank you to everyone who has used Twitpic over the years and for your patience with us over the last couple of months. As you know it’s been quite the roller coaster ride.
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.
What this means for Twitpic users:
- Twitpic will no longer be taking on new photos or data (the site will be in a read-only mode)
- The iOS and Android apps have been removed from the app stores and will no longer be supported
- You will still be able to login to your profile to delete content or delete your account on Twitpic.com
- You can still export and download your data / photo archive on Twitpic.com
This will be my (@noaheverett) final chapter with Twitpic, and again I want to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of your photo sharing memories for nearly seven years. It has been an honor.
