After getting people’s hopes up that the photo repository might stick around a bit longer, Twitpic announced that it will indeed shut down on October 25.
Former users can export their pictures and data through their account settings before the October 25 deadline, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
We worked through a handful of potential acquirers and exhausted all potential options. We were almost certain we had found a new home for Twitpic (hence our previous tweet), but agreeable terms could not be met.
