Twitter 'will be discontinuing Vine' in the coming months



Vine is dead.

Well, sorta. The video-sharing network's parent company Twitter announced on Thursday that it is killing off the service's mobile app in the coming months.

This means users will no longer be able to create new clips. 

"You'll be able to access and download your Vines," the video-making app said in a post.

Twitter's decision to drop Vine is part of their restructuring efforts announced Thursday.

Social media users aren't taking the news all that well.

Goodbye, sweet Vine

Vine got its start in 2013 and has gained millions of "Viners" and "Vine stars" who have turned to the app to laugh at the looping, six-second video clips.

Although it is unclear whether or not users will be able to record new Vines in the future, the website won't be shut down  -- at least, not right away.

The news has prompted an online funeral of sorts. 

People are posting some of their favorite vines to Twitter. 

The end of an era?

"May this loop forever."
