Don’t cry, all your favorite Vines will live on here

While the Vine we once knew is no more, at least Twitter is keeping around your favorite six-second videos for posterity.

The company just debuted a new version of Vine’s website, which now acts as an archive for all the Vines created between 2013 and 2016. 

On the new site, which is described as a “time capsule” for all things Vine, you can search for a specific user’s profile or browse the archives by category or year. Twitter has curated a number of “highlights” in some of its most popular categories, like animals, art, comedy, music and “weird.”

There are also a number of editors’ picks and playlists, where you can relive some of the site’s most memorable memes and popular videos. 

While you can look up your past Vines and browse old favorites, you are no longer able to download video you previously uploaded to the site. You can, however, continue to create new ones in the app — just don’t expect to be able to share them through Vine. (Twitter did recently announce that it would loop short videos on its site, so the format isn’t entirely dead.)  

While these changes might not be enough to satisfy Vine loyalists, the archives at least provide a way to remember the app’s best creations.
