Yahoo! has reportedly made plans to cull social bookmark service Delicious and search engine AltaVista.
It had since been removed from twitpic but not before the damage had been done.
Yahoo! chief product officer Blake Irving appeared incensed that the news had been leaked out before the search giant had publicly announced any changes.
"Can't wait to find out how you got the web cast," Irving tweeted. "Whoever it is, gone!"
