The Vine Community
Vine was a short-form video hosting service where users shared six-second-long, looping video clips. It was founded in June 2012; the American microblogging website Twitter acquired it in October 2012, before its launch on January 24, 2013. Videos were published through Vine's social network and could be shared on other platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The Vine app could be used to browse videos, along with groups of videos by theme, and "trending" videos. Vine competed with other social media services such as Instagram and Mobli.
This spawned several good, bad and iconic vines that are still funny and memorable as of today. But after it's shut down on January 17, 2017, people started bringing back some of the charms back by uploading numerous vine compilations on YouTube. And because of how repetitive the trend got, some people are unaware that they're becoming a toxic community.
Why They're Toxic in 6 seconds (Not Really Though)
- First of all, it comes from the Jake Paulers, the Logangs, and the TikTok Hatedom since they claim that TikTok replaced Vine when they didn't because TikTok merged with Musical.ly. They never mentioned about acting as a replacement for Vine.
- They can be hypocrites since they hate TikTok for making cringy, offensive, insulting and unfunny videos when they also did the same thing in the past.
- They were unaware of how bad that website was and how flawed it was. Plus, they're unaware of how bad they are as a community.
- Ever since Vine shut down, users have been making numerous vine compilations on Youtube that do the same thing to the point that it gets repetitive and annoying quickly.
- Sometimes, those compilation videos can be clickbait as well.
- Usually, the titles of the Vine Compilations fans make can have weird titles such as cancer jokes, suicide jokes, and depression jokes. For example "Vines that keep me from ending it all", "Vines that cured my cancer" and "Vines that Cured My Depression". Jokes about cancer, suicide, and depression are not funny at all as they can offend people who suffer from these.
- Don't even bother going to change.org. There are chances that you'd see loads of petitions of people demanding about bringing back vine.
- It overlaps with several other fandoms and hatedoms as well because they create dozens of unoriginal content. To simply put it into words, they usually portray these characters by overlaying the original actors with the heads of the characters they're portraying (though this does not apply to all of the vine compilations). Sound familiar?
- Also, they usually call these videos "x As Vines".
- Their fandom can be as bad as it's rival, YouTubers, YTPers, Vyonders, TheTopTens Community, and People who make Portrayed by SpongeBob Videos.
- Some people took these trends way too seriously such as the What Are Those, Deez Nuts, 9 + 10 = 21, Why You Always Lyin', and Damn Daniel.
- The fandom's level of toxicity is so high and so bad, that even the hatedom is slightly more tolerable in comparison.
- All of the communities on the internet were ruined because of them.
Redeeming Qualities in 6 seconds (Not Really Though)
- Not all viners were bad. Some people like Thomas Sanders and King Bach are great viners. In fact, this was how some viners moved on to being YouTubers in their next Career.
- Some are aware of how bad their content is.
- They're right that people can find enjoyment on these videos ironic or not.
- The hatedom can be as bad as them at times, however, they're still better than the fandom.
- Some vines they made are funny, iconic and memorable such as the Fresh Avocado Vine.
- Not everybody acts mean-spirited towards the haters and TikTockers.
