Twitter lets Vine live as updated Vine Camera

Many stories about the shutdown focused on it as a cost-cutting measure, with Vine's server and staffing costs apparently too much for Twitter's balance sheet to handle. The response from the many popular Vine content creators and fans was one of shock, and now Twitter is backtracking a bit from that move, stating that the Vine app will be pared down and relaunched as the new Vine Camera app in January.

Celebrity news website TMZ reported on Wednesday that Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli would also be singing at the January 20 ceremony, but there was no official confirmation.

Once the Vine Camera is live, users won't be able to download their Vines from the app. Vine competed with others such as Instagram and Mobli. On Friday, December 16, the company announced that they need to change their plans. This allowed them to browse all the videos they made since the birth of Vine. Apparently, Vine will be integrating a "Follow on Twitter" feature on the app. What are your thoughts on Twitter transitioning Vine to a standalone Vine Camera app? This was first reported by TechCrunch back in November.

In the coming days we're also rolling out a way to make it easy for your Vine followers to follow you on Twitter - stay tuned for a "Follow on Twitter" notification soon. Their services were acquired by Twitter in 2012. The company is having a tumultuous year so far. But yesterday's announcement encourages users to "continue making and sharing videos" on Twitter. The social network company decided that is not in their best interest to keep Vine as it is now. However, it became evident that Disney and Google eventually decided not to make a bid.
