A week ago, Instagram announced its new video feature just as Vine gave us a sneak peek into future updates. While Instagram lets you record up to 15 seconds of video and gives you the option to remove frames and add filters, we don't see it as a threat to Vine (especially since loading videos on Instagram isn't quite quick enough for our modern, lightning-speed standards.) And when it comes to recording live events like Wendy Davis' filibustering or the final verdict of the SCOTUS on DOMA, Vine seems to be the preferred medium. It's been an emotional week for all of us, so why not unwind with some of the week's best Vines?
