Twitter dating service
The company was acquired by Twitter in October 2012 for a reported million but was later reformed as Intermedia Labs and found HQ Trivia. In July 2014, Vine updated their app with a new "loop count" meaning every time someone watches a vine, a number on top of the video will appear showing how many times it was viewed.The "loop count" also includes views from vines that are embedded onto other websites.
Vine said users of the service will be notified before any changes to the app or website are made.
It would serve as a similar but new and improved version of Vine.
The videos would last between 2 and 6.5 seconds and would loop continuously.
The company also stated that the website and the app will still be available for users to view and download Vines; however, users will no longer be able to post.
On December 16, 2016, it was announced that the Vine mobile app would remain operational as a standalone service, allowing users to publish their videos directly to Twitter instead of Vine; the Vine community website would shut down in January.
However, as you might expect, the launch of the app made a stir on social media.
