Vine Stars Who Left Before Twitter Shut It Down

Vine six seconds fame

Vine is known for its looping six-second videos

In shutting down Vine, Twitter will follow in the footsteps of stars like Justin Bieber who no longer active on the six-second video sharing platform

The app gave users a glimpse into lives of celebrities, and gave them a shot of achieving stardom. The allure of off-the-cuff filming, however, wasn’t enough to keep entertainers like Ariana Grande and Wiz Khalifa from leaving.

Over half of influencers with at least 15,000 followers had not posted on Vine in nearly five months since January, according to study by Markerly, a Texas-based marketing firm. A follow-up study also showed a steep decline in reposts and likes across all users.

Like it or not, Vine fans will have to follow their celebs onto more established (and profitable) social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, etc. Here are the top Vine stars in Makerly’s study who gave up on Vine, contributing to its decline.
