It was a bit of a shock earlier this month when TwitPic announced it would be closing its virtual doors on September 25th. All seemed lost, but now a ray of sunshine has burst through the gloomy image hosting clouds. TwitPic is being acquired by an unnamed party and will live on. Crisis averted.

Twipic has been hosting images on Twitter for years now. Even though competitors have cropped up and Twitter has introduced its own native picture storage option, the service remains a well-known means of hosting images for use on the social network. Its official Android app, which popped up several years after the service gained wide adoption, still managed to accumulate hundreds of thousands of downloads.

But alas, the party couldn't last forever.

Though the service's popularity has been waning since competitors sprang up (and Twitter itself jumped in the game), Twitpic remains a major host for images on Twitter. They're not going down without a fight, either, and the company has released its official Android app dedicated to sharing photos on Twitter. With a UI heavily inspired by the Twitter app itself (duh), it allows you to browse through photos hosted by Twitpic on your Twitter timeline, as well as edit and share your photos.
