It was earlier reported that Vine was also rolling out a way to make it easy for Twitter users to migrate their Vine followers to the social networking site.

"Users can upload their creations to Twitter right from the new app, if the accounts are linked, or by going through the social media site," the report noted.

With the emergence of new platforms like Snapchat and video on Instagram, Vine has lost its popularity.
