Vine will no longer be apart of our Twitter lives…but are we concered? Probably not.
Today, Twitter has announced that it is closing its video sharing doors with the four year old Vine service. As the company did not give a reason why they were slashing the service, on Thursday they announced it was cutting 9% of its workforce following slow growth of the social network.
Vine reports via the company’s blog:
Today, we are sharing the news that in the coming months we’ll be discontinuing the mobile app.
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.
What’s next? We’ll be working closely with creators to make sure your questions are answered and will work hard to do this the right way. We’ll be sharing more details on this blog and our Twitter account, and will notify you through the app when we start to change things.
At this point, it’s quite clear that Vine didn’t keep up with the evolving changes especially via Snapchat and IG’s Instagram Stories, plus the 20-second video that you can just simply add to Twitter itself.
Can we say…R.I.P. Vine? Pretty much.
