Twitter Converts Vine Website Into Archive

Vine may be gone, but Vines live on.

Vine may be gone, but Vines live on.

Twitter announced last October that it would discontinue looping-video application Vine, adding in December that Vine would be replaced by a pared-down app called Vine Camera. That transition occurred Jan. 17.

However, Twitter quietly turned vine.co into an archive of Vines from 2013 through 2016, which users can search:

  • By year—2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016.
  • By genre under Highlights—animals, art, comedy, edits, music and dance, sports and weird.
  • Editor’s Picks.
  • Playlists.

The move was announced in a blog post Friday:

Today, we made an update to the website: The Vine Archive is a time capsule of all posts made to vine.co from 2013 through 2017. Jump into a classic meme, have a laugh or look up a profile.
