    Twitter (as the owner of Vine) announced that they will shut down Vine in the coming months. The site will stay online, the already uploaded videos will stay, but the users won't be able to upload new ones.

    Not sure, if anyone is still using Vine (for marketing), but i thought, i put this up here regardless.

    Their live video streams are also not gonna last long.

    99% of it is used for crap content, mostly by freeloaders who think seeing ads is an insult and that everything should be gratis.
