Earlier this month we reported on the news that Twitpic had decided to shutdown on September 25th, largely because of a trademark conflict with Twitter.
Now, the company has tweeted that it won’t be closing down after all, having been acquired by an unknown third party.
Here’s the tweet:
We’re happy to announce we’ve been acquired and Twitpic will live on! We will post more details as we can disclose them
— TwitPic (@TwitPic) September 18, 2014
This is @Twitpic’s first tweet since September 4th, when they announced their impending closure. No word on who the buyer is as of yet – we’ll update when we know more.
