Yes, you read that right, one of the most popular Torrent serving sites is going to stop serving Torrents (.torrent files) starting February 29 this year.

But its also not to say that TPB will not be using torrents anymore because a Magnet link is just another way to download a torrent, it actually uses the torrent in the p2p swarm instead of on a centralized web server.
