New Delhi:

Social media platform Twitter has finally shut down the Vine app service, revamping it into Vine Camera that will let users shoot 6.5 seconds looping videos which can be later uploaded. 

According to media reports on Tuesday, the company has not yet been revealed when the application will make the transition. 

Twitter acquired Vine in October 2012, and as of 2016, the app had over 200 million active monthly users and more than 1.5 billion loops have been viewed since its inception. 

"Users can upload their creations to Twitter right from the new application if the accounts are linked, or by going through the social media site," the report noted. 

With the emergence of rivals like Snapchat and Video on Instagram, Vine's popularity witnessed a major decline.
