Vine Is Dead

By Christina Warren on at

Twitter is discontinuing its Vine mobile app. RIP, Vine. The announcement, posted on Medium, comes just after Twitter announced its latest quarterly earnings.

The Vine app will be going away, “in the coming months” but Vines will continue to exist.

From the Medium post:

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.

In probably related news, Twitter is laying off 9% of its staff. [Medium]
