NEW YORK (WCMH) – Vine, the popular six-second video sharing service, will be discontinued as an app in the coming months.

The company, which is owned by Twitter, made the announcement Thursday. Vine was founded in 2013, and serves as a platform for users to share looping videos.

The physical website will reportedly be kept online so users can continue to watch the videos.

Vine is often used for comedy, but users have also been on the forefront of major political events, such as the video below, which captured the sound of the terror attacks in Paris last November from inside a soccer stadium.
