The Huffington Post recently interviewed Kyle M.F. Williams, or Keelayjams on Vine, about a little social experiment he conducted earlier this month: Tweeting his username and password so anyone could post as him. The result? Absolute chaos, and 3,000 out of his 64,000 followers lost. But he described the act as necessary, as he felt the sudden internet fame was getting to his head and that he needed to let go. Luckily, he reset his password and has continued to make his iconic, surreal Vines.
In the meantime, Jobs released a clip on Instagram Video, Nissan and Honda jump on the video app advertising bandwagon, and stop motion Vines continue to entrance us:
