The 9 Best Vines of the Week: A Jab at Instagram & A Priceless SCOTUS Moment

Can't keep up with the rapidly-exploding Vine craze? We're your one-stop shop for each week's 6-second masterpieces, be they from newcomers on the scene or established Vine geniuses. This week: Vine follows the news, big time!

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?
