Twitter has announced that it is going to shut down Vine, which is a short loop video sharing service. The service was brought by twitter in 2012 and launched in 2013. According to to the company, Vine’s mobile apps will be discontinued. While the website will be sticking around.
Nothing is happening to the apps, website or your Vines today. We value you, your Vines, and are going to do this the right way. You’ll be able to access and download your Vines. We’ll be keeping the website online because we think it’s important to still be able to watch all the incredible Vines that have been made. You will be notified before we make any changes to the app or website.
The service failed to touch the peak which Twitter was hoping for. This is a bad news for users who enjoyed 6-second clips that Vine was known for. Twitter said that app will be discontinued “in the coming months.”
