The vast and brutal digital food chain that is social media claimed another victim Thursday at the news that Vine is ceasing operations. Launched in 2013 and the source of billions of videos looped trillions of times, Vine is most likely the victim of Instagram’s video option. Or it was swallowed up the bigger footprint established by Snapchat once it started being about more than sending temporary bewb pictures. Though it could be that it was devoured by Facebook Live, which is eating everything in the ecosystem.
Regardless, it’s only fitting that I pay tribute with one man’s list of the top ten Patriots moments captured by Vine videos. It’s my way of saying thank the app for presenting us years of greatness, six seconds at a time.
