Twitpic did not cease to exist on September 25 as recently anticipated.

The Twitpic twitter account announced on September 19 that the business had been purchased. To date the identity of the buyer has not been made public.

Twitpic is shutting down on September 25 2014. (Update: see here.)

This in itself doesn't upset me so much - I have used its facilities just nine times, the most recent being in June 2013 - but the circumstances are unsettling. Twitpic's owner Noah Everett says in his corporate blog:

Today's Haka brought to you by the Tall Blacks

Before their game against Team USA in the FIBA World Cup on September 2 2014, the New Zealand men's basketball team, the Tall Blacks, did what all New Zealand national teams should do... perform the Haka.

Judging by the looks on the Americans' faces it can't be long before we see a USA equivalent... surely?

USA won the game 98-71.
