The announcement was made on Saturday, the day the service was shut down. The aim is that the files are not lost.
The story of Twitpic, a service for uploading popular image of the network reached a definitive end on Saturday but it was not as expected. After a last-minute deal, Twitter took the site domain and its image archive.
The measure seeks a clear objective: the files posted by users are not lost or are removed from the network. Under the new agreement, Twitpic.com is under the control of Twitter, along with the library of content there posted. Users with registered accounts can get the service to him but only to lower or remove images, not to publish new content.
