Twitpic Shutting Download in 3 Weeks- Migrate Your Data Now.
The in-trend and famous Twitpic is discontinuing their service in the next 3 weeks. If company refuses to abandon the trademark application they will face risk of loosing access to the Twitter API, Twitpic explained that they cannot mess with the microblogging giant Twitter. In addition to it, they also said that taking this decision wasn’t easier for them and thanked all the users for supporting them.
Everett, the CEO of Twitpic said that they were contacted by Twitter few weeks ago and warned to give up the trademark application. However, it feels bit awkward to hear that because Twitpic has been established since 2008 and it makes no sense to warn after around 6 years of establishment.
The CEO of Twitpic said officially, “We are warned by the Twitter that if we do not give up, they will deny the access to their API and unfortunately we do not have much resources to fight against such a big social media giant Twitter and do not have any other choice left too but still we believe that this rightfully belongs to us. Hence, we’re shutting down Twitpic this September 25.”
One of the Twitter’s representative said when talking to a company known as Fast: “We feel sad for the Twitpic and encourage them for their great service, as Twitpic served for years. We made it pretty much clear to Twitpic that we are just protecting our brand name and the domain Twitpic includes our brand name which is a privacy concern for us.
Twitpic announced to shut down their service this September 25 officially. They are working on to create an export feature for their users to allow them to export their media from their servers.
