Vine shutdown sets off emotion

Natasha Dardashti multimedia editor

“Do it for the Vine.” “I ain’t gonna do it!” “Do it for the Vine!” “I ain’t gonna do it!” “Do it for the Vine!” “I ain’t gonna do it!”

Back in 2014, these words, along with its signature beat, were heard echoing down school hallways and playing from phones. Memes like this, along with, “You got a bae, or nah!” and, “What are those?” all originated from one app: Vine. Now, all these memories are at jeopardy thanks to Twitter’s executive decision to deactivate Vine due to financial cutbacks. With competitors such as Snapchat and Instagram’s new video feature, Vine is left simply unable to retain interest.

“Personally, I used to like Vine, but I feel like it’s a thing of the past,” junior Maria Halsey Soloman said. “Now it’s kind of irrelevant to the point where I don’t really care about it being shut down.”

While most do not seem to care about the loss of the app, some miss the memories that it helped to create. Junior Cheyanne Araullo, for example, claims she will only miss the videos she took of her nephew.

“Everything comes to an end, I guess. It was fun while it lasted,” Araullo said. “I won’t miss it. I’m over it. I’m just bummed I’ll be losing Vines I made of my nephew.”

According to senior Erin Winarto, Vine’s defining feature was the length of the video. She believes that because some funny videos are too long, they lose their humor.

“I really liked Vine because it was creative and short,” Winarto said. “Vine is for everyone. It’s also good for reaction videos, like when you can’t use gifs or pictures.”

Though Vine is being shut down, it appears as if most millennials have grown out of the app completely.

“Well, I don’t think it really matters too much to teenagers anymore. No one cares about Vine now,” Winarto said. “It’s sort of like an old trend dying. But it’s really dying now, because it’s being deleted.”
