Plixi, Formerly Tweetphoto, Shut Down By Lockerz

Photo sharing service Plixi, which got its start in San Diego as Tweetphoto, has just been shut down by owner Lockerz. The shutdown is not a surprise; Lockerz laid off all of its San Diego office in January. That office had been acquired when Lockerz bought Plixi in January of 2011. Plixi had, as TweetPhoto, developed a service to let users share their photos on Twitter--something which has since been swallowed up into Twitter itself.
