Twitpic may not have avoided an untimely demise, but you won't have to worry about some of your older Twitter photos disappearing into the void. The defunct hosting company has reached a last-minute deal that will have Twitter take over both the Twitpic web domain and its photo archive, keeping all those legacy images intact. It's not a revival; Twitpic is no longer taking new pictures, and all that you can do now is delete or download your collection. There's also a chance that those snapshots will go offline, since Twitpic can only promise that your library is safe "for the time being." Still, the pact will give you at least a temporary place to go when you're feeling nostalgic about that first selfie.
