So, Vine’s shutting down.

Vine Logo

News broke today that Vine, the social video platform for 6-second videos, is shutting down. Which is not hugely surprising. It got its fifteen minutes a few years ago and has been steadily declining since then. Judging by the outcry on Twitter (where “Vine” has been trending all day), though, it was still pretty popular.

The Internet is full of eulogies.

Vine was waning in general use, sure, but its shutdown probably also has to do with the fact that Twitter is bleeding to death and falling apart at the seams, largely due to mismanagement and its harrassment problems.
