Twitter announced in a statement Thursday that its Vine mobile app will be discontinued “in coming months." The company also had a significant amount of layoffs today at Vine, according to The Verge.

Back in 2013, Twitter announced Vine, a new way to share videos directly through tweets. The app became well known for allowing users to shoot six seconds of video and embed in tweets. Twitter initially purchased Vine in October before the company had even launched the product, but it didn’t take long before users got their hands on the app.
