Twitter Vine Drops After Instagram's Video Launch

The number of twitter vine users fell by nearly half a million the day after video was added to Instagram's photo app on 20 June.
Vine is a free app for sharing short, looping videos for iPhone or Android.
The number of links to Vine videos on social networks fell by nearly half a million the day after video was added to Instagram's photo app on 20 June.
Twitter launched its video-sharing platform in January 2013. Users are able to upload and share six-second long clips which play in a loop.
Videos shared via Facebook-owned Instagram can be up to 15 seconds long and filters can be added to change the colouring.

Being honest I expected the Instagram Video to overtake Vine so it's not such a surprise for me. I've downloaded and tried both of them and much prefer the Instagram Video - easy of use. However it will be interesting to see the stats again in a couple of weeks or so. Who knows there may be someone else joining the game.

Well, It doesn't have to be 15 seconds, that's just an option. Instagram was before Vine, I personally like not having to go into another social app. So I stopped using Vine myself, and just stay on Instagram longer. Also, Vine Videos aren't working on iOS 7 beta 2. Another reason some of the shares could have gone down.
