The last ofVine’sthree cofounders is officially out at Twitter.

The company let go of Vine cofounder Rus Yusupov, along with 300-plus other employees, as part of the restructuring plan announced Tuesday.

BuzzFeed broke the news, which a company representative confirmed.

Vine was acquired by Twitter in 2012before its three cofounders – Colin Kroll, Dom Hoffman, and Yusupov – officially launched the social video platform.

Three years after the purchase, Vine has proven its worth. The app, which allows users to create looping six-second videos that can be shared, liked, or commented on, attracts around 200 million active monthly users, according to DMR.

Hoffmanleft his role at Twitter in January 2014and Krollfollowed in April. With Yusupov gone, so are the last remnants of the original Vine team.
