Following Twitter's decision to shut down its video editing application, Vine, the tech company revealed the app would be replaced with Vine Camera starting Jan. 17.

On the website, the frequently asked questions (FAQ) section explains that Vine Camera will still allow users to create 6.5 seconds looping video, which can be uploaded to Twitter or downloaded onto a user's phone.

Meanwhile, existing Vine users can connect their account with their Twitter account, allowing their current Vine followers to see them on the latter platform.

Videos uploaded on Vine can be downloaded before Jan. 17 through the app or website. Those who want to download the videos onto their desktop computer can utilize the "Download Your Vines" feature available on the website or get an email link. However, this download link will only be active for 72 hours.

After Jan. 17, Vine's vanity URL will still exist and continue to display users' profile page. (kes)
