It was acquired by Twitter in 2012. It allowed users to post six-seconds clip on the platform as a precursor to TikTok, which provides little longer video content. It could be considered as a precursor to TIkTok. However, the company shut it down in 2016 because of various reasons. It not only faced tough competition from Instagram and Snapchat, but also grinded in turmoil at the senior management level.
