I guess people just have too many apps to use now a days ... Maybe Instagram's 'Stories' was the nail in the vine coffin? Or maybe it was the fact Snapchat has a bunch of silly filters, or everybody and their literal mother is on Facebook, I'm still not convinced that any actual people use Twitter, I only see brands advertising to other brands.

Full disclosure I never used Vine other than a quick download back when it came out to figure it out, and then again to make this post. Then, I'm doing really good if I log on to twitter and see what's going on. Snapchat, I'll only use if my wife is having a bad day, I'll make a funny filter picture to make her smile. But that's rare too.

Ah well. I guess it was a good run?
