None of the three cofounders of Vine are still working on Twitter’s video-sharing app. Rus Yusopov, the last man standing, as it were, was one of the 300+ employees who was laid off in Twitter restructuring that went down earlier this week.
The news was first reported by BuzzFeed, which confirmed Yusopov’s departure with a company spokesperson.
Vine was founded by Colin Kroll, Dom Hoffman and Rus Yusopov, and sold to Twitter in 2012 before the service ever launched.
The app has been a pretty big win for Twitter, offering users the chance to create six-second looping videos that can be re-shared, liked, and commented on. According to DMR, Vine has 200 million active monthly users across both web and mobile.
That said, none of the founders are still working on the app.
