Twitpic says it’s getting acquired but it won’t say by whom

The official Twitpic account just tweeted that the company isn’t shutting down after all. It’s being acquired, although the tweet didn’t specify what company is saving the day. “We will post more details as we can disclose them,” it said. The announcement comes a few weeks after Twitpic announced it was shutting down its service due to a trademark conflict with Twitter. Thursday, a web Archive Team went to the press upset that Twitpic wasn’t letting it archive all the photos in light of its closure. The move may have pushed Twitpic to release the acquisition information before it was ready. We’ve reached out to Twitpic for more information and will update this if we hear back.
