Twitter announced yesterday that it is planning to discontinue Vine. "In coming months," Twitter plans to end the app that allows users to post the iconic 7-second micro vlogs to the community website. Without that, the site will cease to gain new content.

Yep, that’s right. As of right now, at least, Vine is officially bigger than Batman. The news was announced by Vine’s creative director and co-founder Rus Yusupov. Vine designer Bobby McKenna also celebrated the news and deserves all credit for the Batman beatdown. It’s worth noting Vine only holds this lofty status
