Vine Transitions into ‘Vine Camera’ as Original Service Shuts Down

vinecameraAs promised, Twitter today discontinued the original Vine app and service, transitioning it into a new "Vine Camera" app designed to allow users to make six-second looping videos that can be saved to the iPhone's camera roll or shared directly on Twitter.

Videos posted to Twitter from the Vine Camera app will loop like they did in the standard Vine app, but aside from allowing users to capture and edit looping video, no other Vine features remain.

Existing Vine videos can be downloaded from the Vine website, and all Vines will continue to be available on the Vine.co website, though no new content can be uploaded.

Twitter first announced plans to shut down Vine in October of 2016. The company entertained multiple purchase offers for Vine but then decided to maintain a simpler version of the app that's now known as Vine Camera.

Twitter Transitioning Vine to a Simpler ‘Vine Camera’ App

vineTwitter today announced that rather than shutting down the Vine app entirely as planned, it will be transitioned into a new app called "Vine Camera."

Vine Camera will allow users to continue to make six-second looping videos that can then be saved to the iPhone's camera roll or shared directly on Twitter. No other Vine features will remain.

The Vine app will also be updated with a new feature that makes it easier for Vine users to link accounts to transition from Vine to Twitter, with a tool for allowing Vine followers to follow Vine users on Twitter instead.

Existing Vine videos can be downloaded through the Vine app or the Vine website, and all Vines will continue to be available on the Vine.co site. Vines will be available for download through the app until the transition is made to Vine Camera.

Twitter first announced plans to shut down Vine back in October. Twitter allegedly entertained multiple purchase offers for Vine before deciding to create the Vine Camera app.

Apparently being a famous digital influencer does entail a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

At least that’s what it looks like in the new trailer for Cameron Dallas’ new Netflix show Chasing Cameron.

The 10-episode series, which debuts on Dec. 27, follows the star’s behind-the-scenes life. It focuses in on his adventures with close friends Taylor Caniff, Aaron Carpenter, Blake Gray, Willie Jones and Trey Schafer, as they all set out on MAGCON’s (Meet and Greet Convention) first international tour.

“Social media… it’s the future for the new generation,” Dallas says in the trailer.

He didn’t know that the next two months in hospital would transform his life.   During his time off work, the design consultant discovered the Vine app and began producing stop motion videos, bringing to life ordinary household items in seamless six-second clips.

Now in his fourth year, Willis heads up a team of nine video artists, illustrators, sound designers and paper crafters to make viral stop motion videos for clients such as Visa, Twitter, Samsung and more.
