Vine is back as a 6-second camera app, and users are furious

January 18th, 2017

Twitter’s micro video app Vine died an untimely death — or, if you never used it, a totally logical and appropriate death — late last year, much to the chagrin of the dozen or so “Vine stars” who rose to fame with their goofy 6-second videos.

Vine Killed Off by Twitter

RIP Vine, 2012-2016

Facebook Apps

Facebook’s ability to rip off its rivals will save it

December 23rd, 2013

The core Facebook product is looking increasingly middle-aged and teens’ growing revulsion towards the service has been among the biggest tech themes of 2013.

Vine Video Interview

Why are Vine videos 6 seconds long?

October 25th, 2013

Instagram tried to crush Vine when it added video-sharing to its popular mobile service, and initially it looked like the company might succeed.

On June 20th, Instagram debuted a video-sharing feature that comes very, very close to replicating Vine’s functionality. In less than 10 days, Vine shares on Twitter plunged to less than one-third of the mid-June level. But the most astonishing current trend is just how steeply Vine’s download volume is declining. In America, Vine has dropped from the No.3 …
