After Vine closed down, heartbroken users were wondering where to turn to for the 6-second video fix. Vine provided a space for short video clips to shine. 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.
Vine created a gaggle of popular creators that soon set every trend on the app gaining millions of followers and views. When the app was purchased by Twitter and quickly shut down, all of those creators were scrambling to find a new platform to keep their following on. Enter: TikTok. If you’ve been missing some of your favorite creators from Vine, we’ve found some of the best viners on TikTok so you can still get your fix!

Josh Peck was a celebrity before Vine or TikTok or any social media platform, starring in the Nickelodeon series, Drake and Josh.
