Twitter's plans to close social video service Vine back in October were temporarily reevaluated, but the platform's last days have finally come.

In an FAQ on Vine's website, the service announced that its last day of operation will be Jan. 17. Afterwards, the service will become Vine Camera, a separate app for producing 6.5-second looping videos for Twitter and offline use. Past Vines will still be archived on vine.co but according to the FAQ, Vine's social network will essentially be shuttered and transition over to Twitter.

You can connect your Vine and Twitter accounts so that your followers can find you on Twitter with our new Follow On Twitter feature. (Note that your accounts need to be public, and you must link your accounts in your settings for this to work). We’ll notify you through the app when this feature is available. We hope this will help you grow your audience on Twitter and continue making and sharing videos there!

Users will also be able to download archived Vines from their profile until the service's shutter date. These downloads can be done directly in the app.

Vine's end wraps up a troubled period for the service since its aquisition by Twitter in October 2012. Initially designed as a way to share short video moments with other users, Vine's applications grew to encompass everything from sports highlights to short comedy skits. But amid various company growing pains and turmoil from parent Twitter, the service's long-term viability had roadbumps. For now, avid users of the platform will still have time to archive their content from Vine.
