Vine is the newest social networking platform being soaked up by Gen-Yers everywhere for its six-second video sharing capabilities. Not only can users share their videos with friends and followers on the application itself, but they’re able to post them to other social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Before it was released in January 2013, Vine was acquired by Twitter for $30 million in October 2012. From January to April 2013, Vine climbed to the top of the most downloaded free applications list from the Apple App Store.

Not yet available to Android users, Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann confirmed just one month ago that the app would soon be released to Android devices.

If you’re an iPhone owner who has yet to download the app, or an Android user anxious to get your videography on, here are some of the best Vines out there that will get your hype up, courtesy of @vineapp.
