Vine Twitter

Twitter.com, which is on its last legs, is shuttering their once popular Vine video app.

“We’ll be working closely with creators to make sure your questions are answered and will work hard to do this the right way,” Twitter’s Vine team wrote in a Medium.com post on Thursday.

The social media platform is hemorrhaging money and recently announced plans to lay off 350 staffers — 9% of its workforce.

NY Daily News — Twitter dropped $30 million to buy Vine in October 2012, only four months after Dom Hofmann, Rus Yusupov, and Colin Kroll founded it. It immediately became a hit for sports, journalism and comedy videos, and launched the careers of some self-styled web personalities, such as King Bach and Liane V.

But the industry has since caught up to Vine-land, with Twitter videos and several live-stream apps taking it place.

    Don’t think twitter is going anywhere soon, if anything subscriptions are going to be a thing.

    Me too. I’m still into vine, but everything has its season. Plenty of folks came up, and not just the inventor…The magician, several of those white folks. A few of those Black dudes made it to the big screen…Shiiiit, must be nice. Of course not for all of them,,,At least one turned to porn briefly, allegedly. Is what it is. I’d do porn if I had the right measurements?? Meh. I guess fetish porn would embrace me?

    If they were smart, they would’ve bought their building like Zynga (Farmville).

    They call it The Twitter Building, but I don’t even think they own it.
    Multiple companies are there too. Somebody I know works there.

  • Felicia Kelley

  • @djangothegod

  • Blue

    Now instead of doing it for the Vine, we can get back to doing it for our boss … cause most of the vine videos came out during work hours.

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’ 2 : Electric Boogaloo

    No.lol. Just porn. Looked like some amateur type site that encourages ‘real couples’. Can’t imagine it paid much…

  • lovelygamour

    People started stealing vines, putting them on youtube, and wouldnt credit the creator. Who wants to give their image away for free.

  • JerseyMom

    Bye, Vine!

  • goat

    Twitter is super fast at getting the news, info to the people, if the info is true or false is a different story. Plus some of the funniest meme’s come from twitter. Oh and twitter is exposing a lot of people for who they are.

  • Mystery User

    when will Twitter die? I only use it to read the roasts after award shows and when shit goes wrong, but I’ve never been able to keep up because it just confuses me.

  • Mystery User

    And Instagram – I’m about tired of it too! I don’t like looking at people faces all day. Inanimate objects I am OK with.

  • IGuess

    Idk y but I hate Twitter I created an account n just never use it, my soul just don’t like it n ion use the Otha sites I let the young people have dat only FB, ig

  • IGuess

    They should have remember the acronym K.I.S.S

  • Felicia Kelley

    Ohhh
    A SAN Franciscan!!

  • @djangothegod

    I don’t really need to leave the house for groceries. It’s fun to take the lids to show them how to shop for fresh produce.

    I work for Instacart and WholeFoods, so I totally understand

  • Maya

    I like Twitter particularly for the commentary, the memes, and shady hashtags. People are in rare form on there.
