Vine, the video app for short videos loops, will be shutting down.
Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) and the Vine team announced plans to shutdown the app via a blog post published on Thursday. “When will vine shut down?” That’s still unknown, but the blog post said that it will be in the “coming months.”
Vine said that it will be working with creators to keep them informed about the shutdown. It plans to post these updates to its blog and on its official Twitter account. It will also send notifications via the mobile app. Creators and users are still currently able to access the video-sharing app and website.
According to the blog post, it is only the mobile app for Vine that will be removed. The website will continue to remain active. This is so that users can keep on enjoying the videos already posted to it. Creators can also use the website to download their own videos.
“Thank you. Thank you. To all the creators out there — thank you for taking a chance on this app back in the day,” the Vine team and Twitter said in the blog post. “To the many team members over the years who made this what it was — thank you for your contributions. And of course, thank you to all of those who came to watch and laugh every day.”
