Twitter surprised users of Vine, its six-second video streaming service, and really upset some Vine "stars" on October 27 when the company announced it would be canceling the service. With increased competition from Instagram, SnapChat, and even Facebook in the field of video, often with superior offerings, Twitter had to make some hard choices. It was already looking for a buyer for the Twitter company, and it turns out that Vine is costing Twitter $10 million per month. It's hard to get a suitor interested when you have that kind of baggage.
