Twitpic has been fighting for its trademark name for the past five years and the company has made a decision to close down after making the lawyers of Twitters enraged.

Twitpic creator Noah Everett quipped on a blogpost that Twitpic will close shop this coming September 25, giving the users enough time to download their images and video via tool that hasn’t been released just as yet.

Twitter get in touch with Twitpic’s legal team asking that they would dispose of its application for a trademark, or it would see its API access stop. This development prompted the Twitpic to stop from providing service online.

Everett stated, ‘Unfortunately we do not have the resources to fend off a large company like Twitter to maintain our mark which we believe whole heartedly is rightfully ours,’ and added “Therefore, we have decided to shut down Twitpic… This is an unexpected and hard announcement for us to make.’

The shutting down of Twitpic is not more likely to leave a shoe to fill in the already jam-packed third party image sharing space.

Last August 2011, Twitter began offering its own photo capabilities to the users. Last August 2014, a survey whipped up by the Queensland University of Technology revealed that there were 2.8 million Australians who have Twitter accounts out of 750 million global accounts as of September 2013. Every month there are 50,000 new Australian account owners.

This time Goliath won a fierce battler over the supposed minnow David.
