Twitpic the popular image share service for twitter, seems to have silently endured a database crash or had a severe glitch in their system. While I was browsing pictures on Twitpic, I saw that all the image view counters have been reset to 1.
All of the images in my Twitpic account seems to have some glitch, most of the image counters have been reset.
There is no official mention about any problems on the Twitpic blog. We have contacted the Twitpic team to get more information about this issue. We are still awaiting information from them. We will update this post once we get a official confirmation.
Update: TwitPic responded back with the following response:
Hello, we are currently working on a new view counter for our website. In the process, you image views may have been temporarily reset to 0. We are working to restore the correct image count.
Thank you for your patience.
