Vine is dead, Twitter sells Fabric, Evernote updates and more
This week we say goodbye to Vine as a social network. It will only live as a camera app now. It’s not surprising given that Twitter did not put enough resources into it after the initial buy. The main culprit was live video. Live video eclipsed Vine as the preferred media for social media companies to invest in. This is Twitter’s way of finding a path to profitability. It has not done that yet. Will you use Vine Camera?
