Is Twitter Selling Vine?

Most of us remember when Twitter introduced Vine back in 2013. The social network famous for posting text-based messages on the Internet expanded into the realm of video. The app allowed users to post videos up to 6 seconds as a looping image file. Now, 3 years later, Twitter is conditioning selling Vine to the highest bidder. This news follows a massive layoff for the social network. Reportedly, they were going to discontinue the Vine app, but now they’re looking to sell it. Possible interested parties are rumored to include Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, and Verizon.
