Rumor has it that Twitter wanted to give up Vine, but it eventually developed it into a video archive. If some may have thought that Vine is dead because it may no longer be useful for Twitter, then they should know that Twitter decided to keep the video service and to transform it into a video archive. Vine’s official page has already announced the change and users are now able to use its new feature.
The online repository known as Vine Archive is available by using Vine.co. Specialists claim that this new service is just an analog of the late video-sharing social media network. This new feature appears to be similar to the original app. Users may access Vine.co and they can view hundreds of favorite memes and videos which are organized depending on categories. Some of the categories listed are edits, sports, art, animals and ‘weird.’
The official page of Vine also contains organized outlines from each year of the networks’ four years of service. The site also presents interesting features for fans who are allowed to search for user profiles. Despite this ability, no harm will be produced because the main content consumption apps of Vine will be kept untouched.
Former users who do not want to become part of the new Vine Archive need to sign in to the social network and then manually erase their account. Twitter’s rival, Snap is currently in a fierce competition because the number of their users had dramatically declined. Thus, Twitter announced that they would give up Vine in October to consolidate and centralize their efforts.
The social network has later stated that it will transform the video service social network into an autonomous camera app. This app is bound to allow users to capture videos for their construction, which would last only six seconds. The new app will be available for Android and iOS users. Earlier this week, Twitter decided to integrate the video looping technology of Vine into its landmark service destined to microblogging.
The change will automatically consist of uploaded files. Nevertheless, experts argue that it will only apply to videos which are no longer than 6.5 seconds. Vine Archive will be a time capsule containing all Vines which were ever created by using the Vine app.
