Vine lovers have lived to see the death and resurrection of their beloved 6-second video app.


The Twitter-owned video app that launched viral stars and a new form of visual comedy isn’t totally shutting down.

In January, the Vine app will become Vine Camera, which will still allow users to make the six-second looping videos that made Vine a favourite among users.

Users will now be able to either post the videos to Twitter or save them to their phone.


Vines will loop on Twitter just as they did on the Vine app. Vine Camera will also direct Vine users to follow each other on Twitter.

“We’ve been working closely with creators to find out what’s important to you, to answer your questions, and to make sure we do this the right way,” the company said in a blog post.

Twitter completed the purchase of Vine in 2012.


Vine founder Rus Yusupov had tweeted, “Don’t sell your company,” after Twitter first announced that the service would be shut down.
