It has only been a few short weeks since a new app owned by Twitter called Vine has been available to iOS devices and already Chicago is all a-buzz with this 6 second loop unedited video app. This app took on like wildfire much like how Instagram did with photos and we’re already enjoying a couple Chicago Vine users out there!
***We will be posting a weekly Vine-ing Chicago and would love to include yours. Use hashtag #ChiVine and get a chance to be included.
