TwitPic is shutting down, creator points finger at Twitter
After nearly six years, TwitPic is shutting down its service amidst pressure from Twitter’s legal team. The service has worked in conjunction with Twitter for several years providing hosting services for images and videos.
According to a blog post by TwitPic creator Noah Everett, Twitter contacted his company a few weeks ago in regards to a trademark that was filed for his company that has been pending since 2009. The Twitter legal team demanded they abandon the trademark or risk losing access to the Twitter API.
