Where Have All The Top Viners Gone?
On October 27, 2016, Twitter shocked the world by ending its social video platform, Vine. While news of Vine's "timely" death may have surprised audiences, most of the social media platform's top stars (Viners) knew long ago that the end was imminent. Months before Twitter shuttered its 2013 $30M investment, many of its top content creators began leaving the 6-second video app and pursuing more lucrative projects including Facebook Video/Live, YouTube Red, and movie/music deals.
Since 2013, Vine gave rise to some of the world's most-followed social media influencers launching the careers of Logan Paul, Andrew "King Bach" Bachelor, Curtis Lepore, and many others.
