Some of us really miss Vine. The app that allowed users to share six-second looping clips was a unique creative hub for some of the funniest people on the internet.
Luckily, there are heroes keeping the best Vines alive by doing things like archiving them and uploading them to YouTube. Or, in one case, changing all the contacts in a sibling’s phone to the names of famous vines.
are you fuckin serious? I come home to see this and my brother changed all my contacts to vines. I’m dead goodbye pic.twitter.com/QqjsJrjj78— kimberly (@getphiladoggo) November 27, 2017
All your favorites are there:
They were roomates [sic]
It certainly was sweet of this young woman’s brother to remind her of all those amazing vines. As a bonus, every time someone calls her, it will be a surprise!
Obviously, people on Twitter were jealous she had such a cool sibling.

But there’s no need to be sad. Until Vine returns (fingers crossed), you can always enjoy any of the myriad of YouTube-Vine compilations.
And maybe write your congressman? They may not have jurisdiction, or any actual power in this area, but it couldn’t hurt, right?
