New York: Twitter will update the existing short-form video hosting app Vine to a pared-down Vine Camera despite the service being shut down.
"In January, we are transitioning the Vine app to a pared-down Vine Camera. With this camera app you will still be able to make six-second looping videos, and either post them directly to Twitter or save them to your phone," a blog post by the Vine team said.
Vine is also rolling out a way to make it easy for Twitter users to migrate their Vine followers to Twitter.
"In the coming days we’re also rolling out a way to make it easy for your Vine followers to follow you on Twitter — stay tuned for a “Follow on Twitter” notification soon. And last but not least, you can now download your Vines through the app or the website," it further said.
With the emergence of new platforms like Snapchat and video on Instagram, Vine lost its popularity.
