Twitter axes Vine video service

Twitter has announced it is to close its video sharing service Vine about four years after it launched.

Vine let people share six-second-long video clips that played on a loop.

Twitter did not give a reason for the closure, but earlier on Thursday it announced it was cutting 9% of its workforce following slow growth of the social network.

"In the coming months we'll be discontinuing the [Vine] mobile app," the company said in a blog.

On learning of the move, Rus Yusupov - one of the three co-founders of Vine - tweeted: "Don't sell your company!"
