Twitter Has Killed Off Vine

I can't say this is surprising. Twitter bought Vine four years ago for $30 million, made no money off it, closing it down. Seems about par for the course with all things Twitter. Here's a quote from the obituary:

Since 2013, millions of people have turned to Vine to laugh at loops and see creativity unfold. 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.
