Twitter is shutting down its Vine platform

Twitter is shutting down Vine, its standalone short-form video app that became famous for showing six-second long video clip loops.

The social media company did not reveal details but said in a blog post that Vine users will be notified before they make any changes to the app or website. In the meantime, the Vine website will remain online while users will still be able to access and download their Vines.

The company said that more details will be shared on Vine’s blog and Twitter account.

Vine was acquired by Twitter in 2012 and it officially launched a year after.
