This week, Twitter announced that it would be discontinuing its app, Vine, within the next few months. In response, hundreds of thousands of people went to Twitter to express how they felt. Some people took the time to tweet about how Vine has saved them from boredom or awkward situations. Many people tweeted the hashtag #RIPVine and/or #VineHallOfFame along with their favorite Vine(s). Also, some internet-famous comedians also took the time to tweet about Vine and how the app helped them go viral and jumpstart their careers.
Vine is an app where you can watch/record other people’s videos. What’s different about Vine from other apps is that all video recordings only last a maximum of six seconds. What’s crazy about Vine is that you can tell a story, make a joke, create a one-manskit, and pretty much do anything in just six short seconds. You could scroll through many vine videos and have many laughs in a matter of just five minutes, just because Vine videos are so short. Vine is also the app that kickstarted the careers of many internet-famous people like Khadi Don, Forever Kelz, and Jay Versace.
I loved using Vine. I use all kinds of social media, but after scrolling for a certain amount of time, it could eventually get boring. At its peak, Vine was one of those apps that you can scroll for an endless amount of time and never get bored. Although Vine is one of the youngest apps out, I’ve probably laughed hysterically more times on it than any other app. Recently, Vine came to a point where you would have to scroll through so many vine advertisements or promotions to get to slightly funny video. I agree with Twitter when they say it is time for it to go, but I will always remember and appreciate all the laughter Vine has brought to me. #RIPVine
