Vine made a splash in 2013, as the novelty of creating seven-second videos enthralled a surprising number of people and created an entirely new class of social media stars. But, apparently, that wasn’t enough, and Vine is shutting down.

The news was announced via Medium and it won’t be immediate. However, the mobile app is being discontinued, and as that’s more or less how Vine accumulates new clips, it’s effectively the end of the service.
