A bad day for TwitPic users, the end is nigh

Twitpic will be shutting down September 25th. You will be able to export all your photos and videos. We’ll let everyone know when this feature is live in the next few days.This is an unexpected and hard announcement for us to make and we want to lay out what led us to this decision.A few weeks ago Twitter contacted our legal demanding that we abandon our trademark application or risk losing access to their API. This came as a shock to us since Twitpic has been around since early 2008, and our trademark application has been in the USPTO since 2009.

Another example of a BigCo flex some weird muscle and putting a perfectly fine operation out of business for no really good reason.
