Shortly after becoming available on the Android, Vine has officially become more popular than Instagram. Swapping out vintage filters for the ability to paste clips together in a matter of seconds, users seem to prefer Vine when it comes to expressing themselves, whether it's to make daily comedic vignettes, whimsical stop-motion snippets, or simple 6-second shots of cool moments of their lives (you can now see tiny fragments from all over the world, thanks to Vine.) This week's round-up features a special message from the White House, Bo Burnham being cute, and one Viner who is nothing short of brilliant.
