Vine. It’s brought us amazing people like Shawn Mendes, Tori Kelly and King Bach. Not to mention Vine superstars like Curtis Lepore, Nash Grier, Ruth B and Jack & Jack. Who’da thunk that 6 seconds could present us with such talent?
But if you’re a Vine fan, you’re probably going to need a sit down and a strong glass of Ribena, because some news has just dropped which you will NOT like.
According to a Medium blog, Twitter (who own Vine) have decided to axe the video platform altogether, following a 9% cut in their workforce.
This is some SERIOUSLY devastating news. C’mon, 2016, you need to stop doing this to us.
Although the app won’t be axed for a while (we don’t know exactly when as of yet), unsurprisingly, you guys are OUTRAGED, and we don’t blame you!
There’s those who have just broken down.

And then there are those who want to stop it ASAP.
I can't believe the app that got me where I am today is gonna be taken down…so many memories just thrown away.

Is anyone else up for starting a petition to #bringbackvine before it’s gone for good? We reckon it’s a good idea!
