The Myspace Effect: We’re Losing ANOTHER Social Media
Twitter has today confirmed that it would close the video-sharing app Vine.
The company is looking to cut nine per-cent of its workforce worldwide to keep costs down.
#Vine closing down is actually the worst news I've heard in the last few months. 😭— Matt Purcell (1-2-3) (@DPurcell17) October 27, 2016
The decision hs come after it failed to sell its whole business following poor user growth and its poor usage as other social media platforms ramp up the competition.
