Vine’s Not Dead: What To Expect From Twitter’s Vine Archive, Vine Camera


If you think Vine went away for good, think again. Twitter has launched the Vine Archive, which contains all of the short, 6-second looping clips published on the video service from 2013 to 2016.

Twitter shut down Vine and its mobile apps this month, but they also ensured that the video service's content will not just disappear by providing tools to export videos, TechCrunch reported. Vine Archive is a static, "time capsule" website that like the original Vine will have archived videos separated by genre or categories such as animals, art, comedy, edits and music and dance, among others.

Aside from the videos, Vine Archive also displays the number of likes, re-vines and loops that a clip had acquired. The original posting data was displayed, too, along with the clip's title and the creator's username.

Some of the creators' most popular videos are displayed on Vine Archive's "Community section." Users can check out the video service's "most looped comedy edit," "most liked" and the "most re-vined fail," among others. There's also a creator spotlight section, which allows site visitors to view the archives of top Viners.

Aside from Vine Archive, Twitter also launched the Vine Camera app last week, which is available on iOS and Android devices. Videos created using the app can be posted on Twitter directly or saved to the phone's gallery.

Those clips, which also play on-loop once they're shared on Twitter, can be tweaked using the classic Vine shooting and editing features. With this move, Twitter is hoping to transfer Vine's users to their own site.

Twitter already allows users to record and share videos. The social media site's users can record clips in-app that plays up to two minutes and 20 seconds. Live streaming and broadcasting are also supported via Periscope, which was acquired by Twitter in 2015.

Vine's shutdown was announced in October 2016 with 200 million users under its belt. The closure was publicized on the same day that Twitter admitted to its huge financial losses.

Vine popularized numerous Viners such as Nash Grier, KingBach, Brittany Furlan, Jerome Jarre and Curtis Lepore, Business Insider listed. Some of these people became comedians and landed roles in TV shows and movies.
