Casablanca – In a statement posted on Medium on Thursday October 27th, Vine revealed that it would be discontinuing the mobile app.
The mobile app, which was started in 2013 and welcomed millions and millions of viewers and thousands of creators, will be discontinued in the coming months. The apps, website and vines themselves will remain available to give people a chance to access and download their Vines.
The Website will remain up indefinitely to give viewers the chance to keep watching the incredible content that has been made on the medium.
In the statement, Vine (which was acquired by Twitter in 2012), thanks all of its creators and users for all time and effort spent on creating awesome content.
According to research, 2016 was a really bad year for the app, with over 9000 users either deleting their accounts or stopping to post, says Business Insider. Vine’s content creators had apparently caught on and left the app for other content platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The common saying, “do it for the Vine,” may no longer be applicable in a few months.
