The video-sharing platform that launched a thousand memes will be discontinued in the coming months, the teams at Vine and parent company Twitter announced Thursday.

Vine, which started in June 2012 as a way to share short looping video clips, was acquired by Twitter in October 2012. Since then, it exploded as a platform for jokes and internet memes — many of them beloved within the online community.

News of the app’s demise came as a bit of a shock to its users, and many responded by sharing their favorite Vines from over the years.

Please enjoy this subjective compilation of the best Vines.

RIP, Vine.
