Sad news rocked the Internet Thursday when Twitter announced they’d be shutting down the loopy short-form video app Vine.

As our way of saying goodbye, here’s a quick summation of what made Vine so entertaining, confounding, frustrating, frightening…
A simple search for “hottest gay Vines” instantly demonstrates why Vine will be mourned by many. Try it; you’ll like it. (NSFW.)
