Twitpic Shutting Down on September 25th After Threat From Twitter

Twitpic Shutting Down on September 25th After Threat From Twitter

Twitter’s internal image sharer, pic.twitter.com, is far and away the most popular way to publish photos on the platform, but that’s a relatively new development.

TwitPic Founder Launches Twitter Clone

It can’t be coincidental timing. Less than 24 hours after Twitter rolled out its official photo sharing service to all users – something which will seriously compete with a service like TwitPic, a third-party application that does the same thing as the now-official version – TwitPic co-founder Noah Everett announces his new project.

How Do People Share Images On Twitter? [STUDY]

Over the past few days we’ve been reporting about Twitter’s new photo-sharing service, which will allow users to upload and attach photos to tweets directly from Twitter.com, the official Twitter apps, and inevitably your favourite Twitter client shortly after that.

The feature is rolling out over the next few weeks, and will be closely-watched by the existing Twitter photo-sharing platforms such as Twitpic, yfrog and Lockerz, who risk losing an enormous number of users – and advertising dollars – to Twitter’s official product, while Photobucket, Twitter’s image-hosting partner of choice, have so much to gain.

But just how much is at stake? This new study from analytics firm Sysomos on how people are currently sharing their images on Twitter gives us some insight into who has the most to lose.
