Where form meets function

After years of loops, laughs and turning ordinary individuals into must-see attractions, mobile app Vine will finally be coming to an unfortunate end.

“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,” Vine wrote in a blog post.

The news followed Twitter’s announcement of company restructuring, where nine percent of their workforce will be laid off, and other cost-cutting measures will be implemented. Fortunately, a small semblance of positive news is that users will still be able to access Vines for a few more months before their removal, for viewing and download.

RIP.
