Were You Using Twitpic?

Not anymore you're not. Founded in 2008, Twitpic is a service that allows you to share photos on Twitter- a service Twitter takes care of pretty well on its own, but hey, there you go. It was plugging along just fine, until now, as Twitter has notified the Twitpic people that they want Twitpic to abandon their trademark, acquired in 2009, or risk legal action. While Twitpic disputes the merit of that, as they lack the financial resources to have that fight, they'll be shutting down entirely on the 25th. As a small measure of consolation, they'll be making an export feature so that people can get their stuff off the service while it's still live.

So, fair warning. You've got three weeks.
