Vine, owned by Twitter, and currently the most popular way to share video clips via mobile devices, seems to have taken a severe hit to traffic following the launch.
According to Topsy research, "the number of links to Vine videos on social networks fell by nearly half a million the day after video was added to Instagram."
At the same time, an extra 300,000 Instagram links were shared.
Yesterday, a week after the app was updated, there were "50% more Instagram than Vine links being shared on the net." The numbers are significant, but it remains unclear whether they will stick.
Vine allows for 6 second clips and is deeply integrated into Twitter.
