2016 has not been been kind to pop culture phenomenons and now, it’s taken Vine.First it took Bowie. Then Prince. Now… Vine is the latest casualty. Alright so Vine isn’t nearly as culturally significant or meaningful as Bowie or Prince but its untimely passing has struck a chord in the hearts of youth everywhere. As a company that focuses so heavily on the consumption of social media, we’d be remiss for not sharing a proper tribute to our gone-too-soon friend by posting the best Vines of all time. Vine, we hardly knew ye.

The countless videos that are just so #relatable:
…alright. Some more than others.
The cruel… but kinda funny
And the just plain clever:
All hope is not lost though, because word on the street is that Twitter is planning some new changes, including enabling live video right in the newsfeed. Watch these and pour one out for The Vine but get excited for the future and whatever Twitter has in store.
