Happy First Vine Birthday
On Friday the Twitter mobile service Vine that lets you capture and share short looping videos celebrated one year of online presence.
It started as a service to make it easier to share short looping videos with a phone and just four months after its release it became the fastest growing app worldwide.
Compared to Instagram which has 150 million users the mobile app has a much smaller user base. In August 2013, the team proudly announced on Twitter that in just eight months the app has reached 40 million users.
We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: this community – now more than 40 million of you – is amazing. Thank you for inspiring us.

To celebrate its first birthday, the team is collecting and showing off viral videos made by users on its site. It is also asking users to join the celebration and share their favorite videos and has created a special hashtag #VineBirthday.
To get a taste of the viral videos here are some examples. You can join the celebration, see the viral videos of the past one year and share your favorite videos on the Vine site.
